Katoomba Railway (Australia)


The world famous Katoomba Scenic Railway was originally part of a network of tramlines built to bring coal and kerosene shale from mines up to the main railway.

John Britty North registered "Katoomba Coal Mine" in 1872. In 1882, a loading platform called North's Siding was opened near Gundar St, and a network of tramways developed from there. These included what is now the Scenic Railway.
