Descriptions The Outer Circle: Melbourne’s Forgotten Railway

In the 1870s Victorian politicians debated the virtues of constructing a 20km-long railway through Melbourne’s east, simply to circumvent a privately-owned railway from South Yarra to Flinders Street Station. By 1878 the private railway had been purchased by the Victorian Government and there was no longer a need to build the orbital railway. But greedy politicians pushed legislation through parliament, authorising the construction of the railway through their own private land holdings. This is the story of Melbourne’s Outer Circle Railway.
