    Could also be a close call for the Bright line.

    Could it be between Seymour and Alexandra. Somwehere near the Goullburn. I think there is a trestle in there somewhere.

    Yep, it could be either of the Alexandra or Mansfield lines too. The Bright line is the most obvious candidate, but I can't think of a wooden trestle bridge that size on it.

    Would have to be somewhere prolific for gold carting as it doesn't seem to be wide enough for a steam train.
    I'd hazard a guess in Beechworth although the foliage doesn't seem appropriate.
    It's more of a Tallangata enviroment.

    You might have hit on something Wolvy. I forgot that the Wang - Whitfield line was a half size, narrow gauge train like the one that is running in the Dandenongs. I think there were similar mini trains in Gippsland, Otways and Powelltown.

    Yep, a cart sits proudly outfront of DP Pub. That's what made me think outside the sq.

    I'd even go so far as to say it IS the Albury-Tallangata line but in the Tallangata region, due to the denseness, ground cover and the height of the foliage.

    sorry, I've been out for a while.

    congratulations on picking the line. not all that far from Tallangatta actually, near Shelley. As the sign says, it's the Boggy Creek bridge.

    the ski.com photos are working - sort of. I tried to put that last shot up that way, but I couldn't link to it. I've left a note for ian in the other thread.

    You may have more luck than me of course

    I think someone (earlier in this thread?)suggested photo bucket as another alternative. never used it myself, but I know I couldn't link to flickr or picasaweb when I tried a few months back.

    Do you have some space with your ISP, lots of plans do. I just use FTP Commander to quickly shove things into my "free" isp provided space.

    somewhere up around omeo or benambra, at altitude, that burnt in 2003. (regrowth looks a bit high for last summer, but it's possible) It looks more like the vegetation on the harrietville side of hotham that on the omeo side, so I assume we have a similar orientation - ie north and west rather than south and east

    or perhaps you travelled by whitfield?

    I would have guessed somewhere around the airport, perhaps as low as Kosciusko Lookout.
    The hint is that log scafold above the ute, if you've seen that before, you'd remember the location.

    I was thinking Cobungra Hill, but I haven't seen the scaffold - in any case that would bring it within the parameters of Bogong's answer - in which case I have no idea!

    I'd give a hint but someone else, not mentioning names atm, said to keep it tightly underwraps.

    They wanted to put a wager on it to see if VSG could work it out...

    [​IMG]

    I wagered no less than a week, tops.

    Some clues: very new regrowth: 06/07 fires. Alpine ash.
    Stirling Road??? or approaching The Bluff??

    Given the clues, and I think she's implying that it burnt last summer, then I'm thinking more Dargo area. They certainly copped it in big way down there. No time to look at maps etc. Since she said it is a mountain, I'll have a go at Mt Seldom Seen, although if I could think of a mt closer to Grantville, I'd probably nominate that.

    Curra's on the right track.

    Tis not Mt Seldom Seen.

    And since it's a mount/mountain, I'd need the name of it to qualify the guess.

    BTW, in the original pic(larger), that log that my ute is parked under, is a big hint. Yes it's from the 2006/07 fires.

    it did in 2003 - as hot as anywhere, took at least 2 years to get to this sort of stage - but it has recovered more than this by 2007 photo date

    Fanging.. you have to give a clue.. make it cryptic, make it fuzzy.. but you must give a clue. That is how it works here. And the deal is... I won't bid anymore. Leave it to you Mexicans. [​IMG]

    Ok will give a clue. But I want you to bid VSG. You'll kick yourself when it comes to light.

    Clue:

    I'm a very handy mountain for more reasons than one. I've got 3 sexy legs guiding the dumb.

    Possibly but you'd want to find a good line or use the rockhoppers, dependant on conditions.

    Handy mountain - That's why I thought Mt Useful, but doesn't it have a clear summit with a dirty big tower and nice hut? Hmmm, time to get the maps out and ponder those very cryptic hints.
    Edit. The best I could think of with those hints was Mt Toorongo, (or, to go wrong, but that's hardly "guiding") 3 legs hmmm, is there a Mt Jake the Peg or Jacob? - (from an old kids song)

    Awww. I put so much thought into that one as well! [​IMG]

    Ok, what about Mount Stander? It strikes me as being a particularly 'leggy' mountain [​IMG]

    I did a quick scan of a few maps around Dargo, and I think she's having us on. I reckon she spent all her time at Whisky Bottle Flat, or perhaps just Little Woman Flat :out:
