Probable Railway Extension. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 14 April 1905
Probable S&lXway Extension. District ''Railway Inspector Milne, who with his son recently toured the Monaro and Gippsland districts on cvcles, j is very much interested in the prospects I of a connection between tbe New South | Wales railways at Cooma. and the Victo rian system at Bairnsdale at tlie Gippsland Lakes (says tbe Goulburn Herald). It has been a matter of frequent conjecture whether a line constructed between these two points would not provide an alternate route between Sydney and Melbourne with Goulburn for a junction. If the Federal capital is established in the Mo naro district at the chosen spot Dalgettv, the prospects of the railway will be much brighter than tliey are at present.
