Maldon Gold - the Victorian Goldfields Railway 108 mins


The Victorian Goldfields Railway between Castlemaine and Maldon in Victoria, Australia is a near perfect example of a 5’3” gauge Victorian branch line of the late twentieth century. Around 10 miles long and running over quite difficult terrain at its Maldon end, with numerous timber bridges, operations on the line are seen in this entertaining film with ex Victoria Railways ‘J’ & ‘K’ class 2-8-0s on passenger and ‘freight’ trains, much of the freight train run being shot on the footplate. Not that well known outside Australia, this is clearly a neat preserved line.
