|Paradise in Border Country. Glenapp, Queensland.|
Tucked away in the hills of Queensland's and New South Wales's Border Country, is the tiny signal hut located at Glenapp. Just off the Lions Tourist Road that cuts from Rathdowney on the Queensland side of the border, over the hills and past the Cougal Spiral to the New South Wales town of Wiangaree on the Summerland Way, stands this little signal hut that dates back to 1930. The year of course was when the South Brisbane Interstate Line opened north of Kyogle. Today, the line is simply known as the North Coast Line, and is the only railway line in use between Sydney and Brisbane. When word got around that the decommissioned hut was to be bulldozed, brothers Dennis and Rob Sibson sought permission to restore this little beauty to the attractive state that can be seen above. The Boys From Glenapp is not only one of the poems featured in my latest offering Last Train to Grafton, but the Glenapp Boys also have their own following on Facebook, www.facebook.com/GlenappRailwayStationFriends.
