View from a forward carriage of the Puffing Billy train, packed with day trippers, crossing the Trestle Bridge in Sherbrooke Forest, soon after leaving Belgrave, Victoria.
The southern reaches of the forest extend to the Puffing Billy track on the left of the train and to the area beside the Trestle Bridge. The forest has many magnificent examples of the native ‘Mountain Ash’ trees, a form of eucalypt and the tallest flowering plant in the world.
This famous timber bridge of 15 spans, now classified by the National Trust of Victoria, carries the Railway over Monbulk Creek and the main Gembrook Road. It is 91.4m (300 feet) long, 12.8m (42 feet) high. The car park below is a popular place for viewing and photographing the train.
