Hi all,

Does anyone have a copy of the following document, by State Rail Authority of NSW (dated 1992; author JH Forsyth):-


Archives section
Vol 3B
Southern Branch lines



I urgently need a copy of certain pages missing from the copy sent to me.
As Craig Carr (Seeseeme) & I are very soon doing a route inspection of the old Narrandera_Tocumwal Branch line, it's imperative I get these asap.

If anyone can assist please either email or IM me. :wave:

Many thanks,

Looking forward to another Southern NSW route.

Hi Peter,

I've had a chat with Dennis, but unfortunately he doesn't have this document. In the past Dennis has been of great assistance to Craig & I; providing several yard diagrams for various sites along the branch line.

As I will be leaving here early Wed 6th May, & our 'inspection' starts Sat 9th May & should end by Thurs 14th May, it's all happening 'real soon'. :)
I intend being back home in Coffs harbour by Thurs 21st May.
Then the 'real' route work steps up a couple of notches, & we'll be into it.
Craig (lives in Bega NSW) & I have been researching & working on our little project for over five years now. And have had some amazing remarkable most generous assistance from several people, both within & outside the Trainz Community.

We may start a thread on our project very soon, so people can read about it & follow progress etc. Also, so they might consider being involved in it, in some way. :wave:

Thanks Peter for your valued input & interest too.

G'day Dennis,

Many thanks for doing that for me.
I've spoken to David (ARHS) in Sydney, & he'll dig it out & scan the pages & email them to me. He hopes to be able to get that done before I leave here Wed 6th May.

How did the rally go?:)

I meant to add that I have TransDEM and would be willing to create the basic files from DEM maps/Google Earth if you need any assistance with this aspect.

I used this method to create all of the Hay & Griffith branch routes and it makes the route building much more productive.

Hi Noel

The rally was good although it was a bit wet and windy.

Fort Scratchley was worth the guided tour of the gunnery tunnels.
