since 1988, west of Musswelbrook and Scone.
Have just spent a couple of frustrating hours trawling through responses on
the net, using various search words and phrases. Quite a number of
references and a few photos of Merriwa rail yard, but cant locate a track
Found a ref in AMRM index of a 1971 issue with a track plan, but wont be
able to access the club library till next Sat. I'm sure our very efficient
club librarian has a pristine copy for me to peruse.
Anyone out there know what site I can bring up to show me on my computer,
here at home, a track plan of Merriwa? The internet was supposed to be
all-informing, all-knowing, but this experience, and another subject I was
(unsuccessfully) trying to research tonight, have left me quite disappointed
Perhaps someone out there actually has this magazine (I think it was the May
June issue 1971) and could scan to me the relavent pages.
ps.........in doing this research, I came across many references to an
attempt in 2009 to start up a Merriwa railway museum, with big plans to
eventually have some sort of rolling stock running on part of the branch
It seemed to start off well, but then it looks like personality clashes
caused people to lose interest and it seems to have collapsed. Indeed, when
I inspected the station area in May this year, it certainly didnt look like
anything was happening.
