100 years since the opening of the Canberra line, writes @Bus400

On the 25th May 1914, the Canberra Line was opened. The Australian Rail Historical Society ACT re enacted this today. The train that hauled Canberra's first train, 1210, is sitting in the museums yard & some other engine went out today. Trying to be as close to as where the Canberra line splits from the Bombala line, I watched things from the Railway Street bridge near Oaks Estate. Presumably, when I stood on the old bridge, this would of been the bridge the first train went under. Train approaches the Railway Street (Oaks Estate) bridge. Train heads along the Canberra line approaching the old Railway Street bridge, it is next to the current bridge. A video of the train going under the bridge http://youtu.be/mdi-zpqqFVQ There was also some guy in a Federal Government car (rego ZY****) doing a bit of filming as well, including us on the bridge.
