  • Medium : Kodachrome, slide number 2001-07-19
  • Description : When I last visited Orbost in Dec 1970 (on my honeymoon), it was bucketing with rain, and this area was under water, making the purpose of the viaduct quite obvious. The railway was running then, but now has gone down the gurgler with all that water.
