1945 Aerial Photo Geengee Water Reserve

Geengee Water Reserve was a water refilling station for the Toowoomba to Crows Nest Railway Line.  Geengee was one of the water sources for the Crows Nest (steam) trains before the line closed in 1961. The old line is clearly visible in the 1945 air photo below.  Photo thanks to Dougal Johnston.

  1. Hi, I think you may find the marks on your map are inaccurate. The EEC is actually the very top left corner ( quite blurry). The place you have circled as EEC is in fact the corner of brazier and utschink rd. the place you have circled as quarry is in fact the actually brick works, with the quarry where they dug the earth being just above the place you have circled as EEC.
