Victoria's Forestry Heritage

A History of Management

Erica Tramways -  Draft


The map below is being developed from information in:

Trestle Bridges and Tramways - The Timber Industry of Erica District 1910-1950, Mike McCarthy
(Published by the Light Railways Research Society of Australia)

At this stage sawmill sites only have been added, and the locations need to be checked.

Once that is done we will look at getting tramline routes onto the map.

The FCV owned and operated at least one tramline as part of the 1939 salvage operation.
