Run the Line

Overgrown, farmed, pushed out, sold off and only half there, Beau sets off with shovel in hand, dressed like a 50's train driver, to retrace an old trainline.
 
Overgrown, sold off, last run in 1958; a half cooked idea, following a trainline that's only half there.

Our Judges say:

As if you need inspiration to explore in your backyard. But here you go!!!!

Ed Birch Director of Salt-Street productions

Uncovering the secrets of the past in his own backyard, runner Bo traces the tracks of an old railway line, bushwhacking, fence-hopping, and hoping the neighbours won't shoot...

Beau Miles lives next to the old Warragul-Noojee Railway line, which snaked for 43km through the foothills of Mt. Baw Baw, and ran from 1892-1954. You can still see the line now as strange scars across paddocks and bold cuttings through the sides of hills. Overgrown, private, exposed, or hard to find, Beau aims to re-run the train line, picking up and finding the stations of yesteryear.
