Brook­field Sid­ing, 1954

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - REGIONAL EXTRA -

OCTOBER 4, 1954 saw another step to­wards the even­tual clo­sure of the Ovens Val­ley rail­way – the with­drawal of the sid­ing of Brook­field, just past Ever­ton.

Brook­field took the name from the prop­erty of Hi­ram Craw­ford, a pi­o­neer of the coach­ing in­dus­try in the North East, who had been a lead­ing cit­i­zen of Beech­worth and Chiltern be­fore turn­ing his for­mi­da­ble tal­ents to farm­ing on the Ovens River.
