Continuing our journey along the Cleveland Line, we go on. The Line goes through the swamps and creeks following Lota Stn, so we have to Stroll through the Chelsea Road Reserve onto Rickett Rd, cross Tingalpa Creek and onto Thornside.
 
Now back to the train line, following it by going along adjacent streets. Bet you have never Strolled down here; probably not even driven this way. The permanent way leaves Birkdale Rd and follows its own path to Wellington Point Station.
 
Do you know there was a previous Cleveland Line (the Southern Line) way back in 1889  https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/3503106  and the current line follows this.
 
Come with me to experience the history of this old railway line.
