The narrow gauge railway will cross the Creek twice. The first bridge is a short skeleton bridge inspireed by drawings from Victorian Railways – Way and Works Branch. Thr bridge is situated close to the backdrop, which is a challenge. How to hide the fact the creek is coming straight out of the sky? Hopefully some well-placed treeferns will do the trick!

How to control the tramwaysText & photos from Wombat Creek Tramways Posted on Fri, July 01, 2022 20:35:39
Three days work and the control panel for the tramways is almost finished. Only the loop around the Big Nugget Mine is missing. The final position of the tracks has to be determined depending on the design of the bridge over the narrow gauge railway.
Obviously the black lines are the tracks. The red push buttons control the points. Some points are still not connected. The black push buttons control the power to the tram-stops. The tracks are under constant power and the trams will come to a stop, unless the black buttons are activated. The slide switches are normally on, but they make it possible to stop a tram between stops.
