The start of a set of points for
a crossing loop at a camp on the Lakewood line.
Well overgrown line south west
of Cave Hill on the Kurrawang line. The line here was pulled up in the
The vehicle track from Johnston
Lakes to Cave Hill using a causeway on the old Kurrawang woodline.
Cutting on the Kurrawang line
south west of Cave Hill.
This is undulating country. This
causeway is joined to the cutting above.
This cutting is 90 miles south
of Lakewood but it is not connected to the last of the main lines. I
suspect it probably dates to the 1916 to 1924 period when the Lakeside
Firewood Company operated in this area
On a spur line about 8 miles east of the 96
mile Main Camp on the Lakewood line is this set of points. This
branches off to cutting areas that I have not yet explored as at
Made by West Australian Railways.
Not strictly part of the Woodlines, this is the start of the siding at
Yilmia which is on the old WAGR narrow gauge line from Coolgardie to
Esperance line. This section of the line from Coolgardie to
Widgemooltha was built by the WA Goldfields Firewood Supply Company in
1908. The WAGFSC cut firewood in the area surrounding this line as they
built it and transported it back to Kurrawang before handing over the
completed line to the WAGR. The line was pulled up about 1974. Yilmia
is about 30 kilometres
south of Coolgardie,
