Melbourne’s Forgotten Railway: a TV documentary about the Outer Circle Line


Melbourne’s Forgotten Railway: a TV documentary about the Outer Circle Line

Melbourne’s Forgotten Railway: The Outer Circle Line is a soon to be released documentary about an abandoned rail line that existed between 1890s and 1930s in my home town of Melbourne.
ts existence tended to melt into obscurity but its trail was still there to trace for any budding historian. With Melbourne’s rich history going through a renaissance, the Outer Circle Line is exciting the memories and imagination of young and old alike as they wonder how Melbourne would have evolved if the line was still in existence.
 Ron Killeen and Andrew McColm have taken this fascination and with the money raised by the Fund sourcing Pozible website are producing a fact filled show for television. Along the way unearthing many pictures and film long thought to be lost.
The documentary should be aired in 2015 but meanwhile click on the link and explore the social media pages of wonderful old photography that many supporters have also helped to contribute to the project.   PREVIOUS POST ARTICLE
