    You've got me on a project now. I'm off to see what I can find about Old Vic railways...

    Coincidentally, I heard something during the week that actual proper detailed maps are no longer going to be printed/published/produced.....
    That's a real shame, but sadly a sign of the times.....
    I only have the one map, I got it from the "The Railfan Shop" ph 98998604, it's titled "Railway Map of Victoria" cost me $2.95, but there's also the Railway Museum at Williamstown.
    There's some pretty special sites out there in Country Vic, we found the site of the old Station at Kotta, nothing there at all except the very small, overgrown, remains of a platform, BUT on top of the platform, all on its own was a WW1 memorial to the local boys who lost their lives in WW1, & explaining that certain trees had been planted in their memory..the trees are still there.

    Back on canals....

    Fred Dibnah did an episode on canals in his 'Building of Britain' series

    If you haven't heard of him it's worth looking at some of his shows. A steeplejack who brought chimneys down the old fashioned way, restored a couple of steam engines, had a workshop powered by steam. I think he was first on UK TV back in the 70's before video recorders so you made sure you were in front of the TV when his show started, now you can watch the shows on YouTube !
