"The past is never fully gone. It is absorbed into the present and the future. It stays to shape what we are and what we do."
Sir William Deane, Governor-General of Australia, Inaugural Vincent Lingiari Memorial Lecture, August 1996.

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.
