QLD maps available from government

Mainly Yarraman area.

Most know the map codes such as 25000 and 100000 in the URLs refer to the scale ie 25000 is 1:25000 etc and thus are also the guide to which dnrm page to check though the main DNRM link page https://www.dnrm.qld.gov.au/mapping-data...maps-plans

If you travel near Yarraman don't forget to pay your respects to the former station site with this 3.8MB cadastral from 1983 when the train was still in operation https://geospatial.information.qld.gov.a...n-1983.jpg

This 3.5MB cadastral map is the approach into Yarraman including Pidna, site of the watering facilities for steamers at the end of the line. https://geospatial.information.qld.gov.a...a-1983.jpg

The 6.8MB Nanango cadastral from 1983 has the town of Nanango as well as the Yarraman line from Pidna to Harlin. https://geospatial.information.qld.gov.a...o-1983.jpg

Reposted from the QRIG Yahoogroup with David’s permission. David Bromage has put part of the Department of Public Lands 40 chain map series from 1919 on Photobucket http://goo.gl/yCTUWG

This 15MB version is much clearer than the 5.4MB version on the DNRM website especially the quarry branch south of Rocklea where you can actually read the words “engine sheds” on David's linked version. That engine sheds text is almost unreadable on the DNRM version. The distance of the Archerfield quarry line, 193 chains 90 links, is marked next to the quarry engine sheds notation where that distance is actually readable on David’s linked version. Destination South Brisbane (1978) shows it as 2 miles 34 chains which is 194 chains so clearly it was just rounded off to the nearest chain in Destination South Brisbane or on the QR source files used for that book.
Cheers Peter Cokley

Some things to note: Toowong sidings, Ascot triangle, Hamilton not yet reclaimed, Bulimba branch, Wooloongabba branch, Belmont tramway, Cannon Hill meatworks branch, Buruda station (later Doboy), Original route through Fairfield still shown, Well Boring Company siding at Yeerongpilly, Quarry branch south of Rocklea (with engine sheds marked), Sunnybank triangle

NRMA (=RACQ) 1967 road map Brisbane Grafton Toowoomba Glen Innes with many long gone rail lines. The brown rectangles that look like they once were sticky tape repairs are just that. 11MB as I scanned (A3) and merged both sides and then combined the two sides into a PDF. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByB-ppG...J6OGs/view
