Be good to check the order of the stations and any that are missed out.

History of line, current uses etc.

Thanks for the notes, Rick. I don't think you missed anything out. It's what you didn't miss out that is a bit worrying! (Far as I know, anything BEFORE East Ringwood is never on the Lilydale line-see main railway line page). I would like to install my image (LilydaleLine.jpg) right about now. It's about as satisfactory as I can get it. There is a good resource on the history of that particular line at Lilydale Station itself-they have a museum and pub, which is a good place to wait of an afternoon.

Outer Circle Intersection with Lilydale Line[edit]

AxSkov, Good work on updating the line guide. However, I believe the outer circle railway intersection still requires clarification. I once had access to an old Victorian Railways book, (can't remember the title or anything else but could probably get hold of it again) which showed the Outer Circle Railway crossing the Lilydale line at East Camberwell with two loops: one providing access from the south to the west (existing Alamein line) and one from the north to the east (from Deepdene towards Canterbury. There was no direct access from Camberwell to the northern section of the Outer Circle loop. Anyone know any more about this? I'll try to track down that book...
