Just having a quick look at the plug in now and find it quite interesting.

A few things that I have noted though...

Herbert District: Victoria Mill's Crystal Creek line is missing completely, and the Grasso Extension line doesn't match up with the lines actual location (plug in shows the track 1-2km north of actual location).

Newlands system:
- Old alignment approaching Armuna is shown, but old alignment up Binbee bank is not (however the alignment is visible on the map).
- Good to be have something to show where one of the old mine branches in Collinsville went too. The start of the alignment is just visible when travelling through by train if you know where to look.
- Sonoma branch/balloon is not shown, but is visible on map.
- Missing Link is not shown (map hasn't been updated to show yet either).
Out of my mind. Back in 5 minutes.

Steve, there is a thread over on Railpage in the Archaeology Forum to post any discrepencies. Hairyleg will then deal with them.

Copied from Railpage; Once again, Dr Waddles has volunteered to host this file on an alternative site as follows:

http://www.ozroads.com.au/rail/hairyleg_..._05_01.kmz

If it opens into "Temporary Places", just drag and drop it into "My Places" so that it will be there every time you open Google Earth, and remember to remove or turn off any old versions you might have, otherwise you will be seeing double.
