Re: Rutways and Plateways in Australia


Some material on the Moorabbin plateway appeared in the July 2002 issue of Australian Railway History, with a follow-up in the October 2002 issue by Ian Cutter. Ian provided a further update in the February 2015 ARH with two photos of existent sections of the plateway along Dandenong Road taken on 30 December 2014. He also advises that items relating to the plateway are displayed in Box Cittage in Joyce Park, Ormond.

There was a plateway in Moorabbin which is etched in my mind as while monitoring works in its vicinity Council accidently uncovered a major gas main which caused some excitement. I have a report on it in my files somewhere.

Hi guys


Probably neither form of these light railways was common in Australia. Can anyone nominate any examples, no matter how obscure or short, of either?
