Mount Samson Railway

As part of my project to explore the railway line west of lake Samsonvale, Harrison and I rode out to the small village of Mount Samson this morning.

There was a small railway station in the town until 1955 which provided transport to the city and allowed local farmers to get their produce to market.

Harrison stands on the ruins of Mt Samson railway station. The railway line would have passed by on the right of the picture.

The railway line passed under Kunde’s Road. The cut-away is visible as the line approaches the roadway.
