The big rock ledge
After leaving Ironbark, the line has to traverse a high rock ledge,
first by cutting through a natural cave. (train is heading for Termite)
the Garratt is heading for Melaleuca
then crossing the natural chasm of Mint Gully (heading for Termite)
then around a 200 degree curve on a timber trestle (heading for Melaleuca)
This is an overall shot of the sandstone ledge and bridges. Sandstone station is in the background, way below us.
The original trestle is seen inside the new one and is 'preserved' for posterity.
Another aerial shot, taken standing on top of the cave, showing the train heading uphill
into the cave and on to Ironbark and Termite.
