EXTENSION OF THE RAILWAY TO 'V/ COOTAMUNDRA. /Vf S. M. Herald's Special llcpor ler. J On Thursday the extension of the Great Southern Railway, from Murruinburrah to Cootamundra, was opened by the Hon. John Lackey; Minister for Justice and Public Instruction, acting for the Hon. Edward Combes, Minister for Public Works, who was prevented- from being present. By this extension the Southern line is lengthened I twenty-five miles, which makes the whole distance from Sydney that now can be travelled by rail 253 miles, and considerably reduces the extent of country which the over land traveller to Melbourne has to cross by means of one of Cobb's coaches. The twenty five miles of railway from MiUTumburrali to Cootamundra formed the last portion of Messrs. A. and R. Amos's contract No. 2, from Yass to Cootamundra, a total length of line, now handed over to the Government, of 641 miles.

(Town and Country Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — Cootamundra Herald — 13 November 1877

f Town and Country Journal. J About thirteen miles from Murrumburrah, the main road fyom Young and Wombat to Gundagai ancj Ooqtainiyidra, &c, , is passed under a timber bridge. Connaughtman's creek crossed by a briok bridge, and near by a platform .and sixling. luiyo constructed' adjacent to the township of Wallendbeon, which, however, oxists as yot only on paper. It is expected that a considerable quantity of wool from the ' Levels' will bo recoivcd at tiiis siding. It seems rather a doubtful policy to locate these sidings so as to suit a far away traffic rather than to accommodate that close at hand. To the neighbouring selector the difference of a few miles in car riage to tho station may not' be of groat im portance. From Waliendbeen platform for three or four miles there is a constant rise, thence to Cootamundra a distance of eight or nine miles, an uninterrupted doeline. At this summit also we again come upon the red soil which from Two Mile creek existed only in patch...

Sheep on the whole, are in fair condition ; but owing to the starving they had some time ago, the clip this year will not be so heavy as those (severally) of past years.
