In the early 1900s a Shire of Ferntree Guly Councilor suggested extending the Gembrook line to Noojee and beyond, linking the Walhalla and Whitfield lines. He suggested the line be continued to link to the Bombala line in NSW. Talk about silly ideas. He would leave some of you for dead.
"Not many people know about that, and it takes a curious mind to find out".
I stumbled across an article saying in no uncertain terms that a FTG shire councillor proposed that the line be extended Gembrook - Noojee - Walhalla and it mentioned Omeo and Bombala. I can't remember whether he actually proposed it be extended there as well or if it was more a "possible future extension" once extended to Wally. I do remember the article also says straight out that there was much laughter at that council meeting after hearing that proposal. Has anyone else found this article and can point me in the right direction to find it?
