Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This bridge was built in 1899 from local mountain ash trees by Joseph Saville at the cost of £482. The narrow gauge line and bridge were built as part of a plan to open up the Dandenong Ranges to the public following the depression of the 1890s. The Trestle Bridge above the Monbulk Creek measures 12.9 metres at the highest point and is over 90 metres long. It is listed on the State Historic Register (1962).

I personally love the way trestle bridges look which is why I stopped at this roadside stop. There is room for a few cars at the location, but the area is not formalised. Also an information sign at the location... sadly, it's splattered with mud. After reading about its build date I realised it was built the same year my Great Grandmother was born...as I said to her, "aging simply makes you an antique and they are treasured". She wasn't impressed with that statement at the time... but there is so much truth in it. 

Whilst I stopped to photograph the bridge, the iconic Puffing Billy arrived and I could not miss an opportunity to snap a few more photos. There was another young man there taking photos which really shows the timelessness of this part of our history.

Located in the suburbs of Melbourne, the wooden bridge that the steam train must pass through. The steam train ride takes about forty-five minutes, and it will pass through this wooden bridge when it is almost finished. It will be completely crossed in a few seconds.
