-Farrell-Tullah.pdf an extract of the 1:100 000 topo showing the area of
interest.

Interesting plan, a mixture of metric & Imperial. The contour intervals are
at 40m and the elevations are in metres. The sheet number is 8014.

G'day again,

OK, original file has been deleted and replaced with another which now includes scale data, sorry, seniors moment.....

Just in case it's not obvious: red lines are roads with the fat lines the better choice; crossed black lines are rail, the dashed ones with the dot every fifth are power transmission lines[usually also straight], dashed ones not that obvious - could be rail in tunnel but the portals are usually shown, timber track maybe ?; blue stuff is water with the dotted area to the east of Tullah being swamp; brown is earthen features and contour lines. Think that's all....

cheers,
Bob

Hi John,
Thank you very much for the link.  That site was where I saw my first pictures of the Tullah Area.  However, the list of pictures from your link had seven additional pictures that I had not seen before.
Thanks to the help of a lot of nice folks like yourself the puzzle is getting closer to looking like a plan.
Thank you.
Bill

I have an enquirer (in the US) who proposes to build a model based on Tullah and needs a track layout of the immediate Tullah area. I am following up a couple of lines of enquiry but would grateful for any help in this direction.

G'day Bill,



should have thought of that one ! This was a mining area and as such there

would have be quite detailed maps issued from time to time by the Tassie

State Mining Dept [or whatever they were called at the time]. These will

likely be at a better scale than the old survey maps produced by the Defence

Dept.



A request to both the State Library of Tasmania and the State Archives

should be helpful but you may need a local contact in Hobart to help out....

Re: Tullah - Update

Hi,
I sent an email to Greg Blake asking about general information on Buildings and maybe a map of the railroad track in the mine area.  Here is his reply:
"Hi Bill,

To My knowledge there are no drawings, however there maybe some old aerial photographs in the archives in Hobart that may be useful, but it may be some time before I can get there. There are a number of old photos about that may be able to help you out as well. Leave it with me and I'll get back to you. Email me again if you haven't heard from me in a while to prompt me if I get lazy and it doesn't get done.

Cheers

Greg Blake"
Given a bit of time Greg might be able to dig up something.

I spent some time in the State Archives and the State Library when we were living down in Tasmania ... they were the sort of places where my wife had to come and get me otherwise I'd probably still be there :)



From memory the State Library had a map room so that might be the place to look for maps too.

I only went to the first point shown on the map, the first green track from
the red fire trail, below falls. I saw about 100 metres of formation there,
about half with the timber rails and sleepers. At the western end of that
section is a barbed wire fence which seems to indicate private property. I
was planning to walk further east but my wife changed her mind and didn't
want to and, as it was hot and humid, we went back to the air conditioned
car. It doesn't appear that much, if any, maintenance has been done since
2001 with a lot of undergrowth on the formation.

Re: Tullah - Update - Topo plan

Bill Fornshell <bfornshell@...>
 

Hi Bob and Eddie,
Thanks for posting the map.  
Eddie, we know that for a longtime their was no road connection between Tullah and any other town. I expect that at one time the railroad connected the two sections show on the map.  I also have pictures with many more tracks then the map shows.  The map is good for the topography of the mountain to the East of Tullah.  This is one more item I can use. I can use the contour lines around the mine symbol to help me place the other track around the mine.  With this map I also make a terrain model and get a better idea where the building and track were located. That will be something to work on this weekend.
Can I assume that the grid squares are 1,000 meters?
One of the places I looked for a map was Google maps.  I could find Tullah but I could not enlarge their map big enough to be of any use.
Bill in Texas

There are also rusty rails along the north bank of the Hastings River, just
inside the entrance. I saw them from a cruise boat but didn't get over there
for a closer look. I was told it is the remains of a tramway used in the
1930s to place the rocks along the river bank to prevent erosion.
