via Tumut. NSW

1913 - Reka is the highest point on the line, being 1290 feet above sea-level, this siding being only nine miles from Tumut, the terminus. In, between these two points there is an array of country suitablo for fruit growing, dairying, and general farming. Gilmore Siding is the key to one of the most beautiful spots on the line. It is the starting point of the coach journey to Batlow and Tumbarumba. Just now it presents a picture of rural contentment. The paddocks are knee deep with grasses, in which the stock luxuriate. The willows on the banks of the creeks are at their best, having just burst into leaf, and the creeks are running full streams. - (REf- The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954)(about) Previous issue Thursday 6 November 1913).
