Turrella Tramway - Luddenham










 

LUDDENHAM

 

LUDDENHAM is the name of the station and passing loop at the highest point on the mainline (at the back of the garden) and serves the Shire’s administrative centre. Luddenham station itself is an island platform. Platform 1 at Luddenham services trains along the mainline to Bigglestown South, Bigglestown, and Turrella Terminus in the Up direction and trains along the Girlieville Branch in the down direction. Platform 2 services trains on the passing loop which are on their way to Coal Creek. This platform also acts as the exchange siding for locos on ore trains to and from Coal Creek Quarry. Therefore this station can get quite busy at times with station master having to manage a wide variety of traffic at regular intervals.
(Nomenclature: Luddenham also shares its name with a small town (now suburb) west of Sydney, at the foot of the Blue Mountain which was pioneered in the late 19th Century by the ancestors of the present CME of the Turrella Tramway.)
