Circumnavigating Australia — Puffing Billy to Belgrave Railway Station

Puffing Billy Locomotive 8A

As I mentioned on Monday, we took an abbreviated trip on Puffing Billy. Our point of origin was Menzies Creek Railway Station, and our destination was the main railway station at Belgrave. So, whereas on Monday’s article I showed you the full five-station route, today I’ll present to you the truncated route we took from Menzies Creek to Belgrave:

In case you’re wondering what we saw along the way, here are some examples:

Of course, my favorite view this trip was our train crossing the Monbulk Creek trestle bridge:

And, finally, as we prepare to roll into Belgrave Railway Station, we are greeted by the appropriate signage:

  1. The Dandenong Ranges are really beautiful indeed. You really capture the verdant greens well in these photographs, Doug.
