Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The former Victorian Railways, the state railway authority in Victoria, Australia built a number of experimental 2 ft 6 in narrow gauge railway lines around the beginning of the 20th century. Although all were closed by the early 1960s, parts of two have been reopened as heritage railways. A depression in the early 1890s brought a halt to the rapid expansion of railways in Victoria. Politicians promoted narrow gauge lines as a way to link remote communities, particularly in hilly country, without the expense of the 5 ft 3 in broad gauge railways.
