Wombat Timber Trestle

Wombat Timber Trestle. Ron Woods writes: Somewhere around the mid-1960s, a friend and I chanced upon this timber trestle, which was just on the Ballarat side of Wombat station (to the right of the photo), on the long-closed Newlyn - Daylesford line.  This is a good example of "take a photo when you can" - we were surprised to find that, just a month later, it had been demolished, leaving not a trace.

The position of this bridge is approximate, as there is nothing to indicate its position any longer.
