RAILWAY STORY BOARDS
Forming part of a rail heritage trail, the recently installed Belair Station story board along with the Blackwood Station story board have been created by BAG’s history group with an enormous amount of help from Ross Hurley, a local train historian. We are grateful to Mitcham Council for funding through the Community Development Grant scheme for the graphic art work (created by Tamara Jakovlev from Design Girl ) and to Rail Care SA for funding the printing and installation which was carried out by Signs by Knight.
We welcome the community to visit the train stations to learn about our local history and explore the railway artefacts nearby. The next station story board project is for Eden Hills.

Belair, in the Adelaide Hills, was one of the prettiest stations on the old SAR system, and the destination for visitors by rail to National Park. Ross Hurley takes us through the history of this popular station on the Main South Line. Click here to read more!
