Tumut Railway Extension

 Australian Town and Country Journal

17 June 1903

For Federal Capital purposes, the engineer in charge of the Tumut railway has received instructions to survey a line from the terminus through Bombowlee, Lacmalac, to the Little River, and a site for a station is to be chosen somewhere hereabouts.

The vicinity was inspected specially by the experts, as being considered more suitable than the advocated land at Gadara.
