Run the Line
Overgrown, farmed, pushed out, sold off and only half there, Beau Miles aims to re-run the old Warragul-Noojee Railway line, which snaked through the foothills of Mt.Baw Baw, and ran from 1892-1954.
Beau Miles lives next to the old Warragul-Noojee Railway line, which snaked for 43km through the foothills of Mt. Baw Baw, and ran from 1892-1954. You can still see the line now as strange scars across paddocks and bold cuttings through the sides of hills. Overgrown, private, exposed, or hard to find, Beau aims to re-run the train line, picking up and finding the stations of yesteryear. Seting off with shovel in hand and dressed like a 50's train driver, running end to end would be the first human passing in over 60 years. Police, fences, blackberries, runner musings and leftover pasta map beau against a warm autumn day as he makes his way across a landscape he's lived in his whole life.
