Up - Ingham to Knowsley

Trail section between Ingham and Knowsley Station site

Section Highlights:

The Trail passes a house site that possibly contained the house that was sold by Mrs. Ingham to the Victorian Railways. Ruins existed here until early 2015. It then continues through the Knowsley Forest past Marker Post 86, on an up grade, passes Marker Post 85 at its apex, followed by Marker Post 84 at the edge of the Forest. At this point, the Trail has also exited the Axedale Squatters Run.

Another up grade takes the Trail over an Occupation Crossing to the top of a rise that overlooks Knowsley. A gravel pit at the left provided ballast for the line construction.

The path towards Knowsley follows the rail bed until just before bridge remains where it diverges to bypass private property. The rail alignment is easily seen and the Trail rejoins at the end of Railway Court where it enters the Knowsley Station site. A timber siding extended out into the paddock on the left.
