Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore rail trail

Linking central Victoria via the old railway line

Station signs go back up

It’s been a long time since they were taken down and now station signs are returning. With the help of a council community grant, council, fundraising by the Friends and a lot of time and muscle power, we’re installing five signs to mark some of the major stops between Bendigo and Axedale. Travellers along the trail will then be able to see where the train once stopped at Rifle Butts, Rangelea, Strathfieldsaye, Longlea and Axedale. A sixth sign will also show where the Heathcote station was located.  The Friends are planning to install the signs at volunteer working bees before the end of December 2012.
