Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Whitton (1820 in Wakefield, Yorkshire, England - 20 February 1898) was appointed Engineer-in-Charge for the New South Wales Railways, Australia, in January 1867. Over the next 32 years he completed 2811 miles of railway around NSW and Victoria. He is notable, in particular, for building the railway over the Blue Mountains, in particular the Great Zig Zag near Lithgow, and much of the Great Southern Line. There is a memorial to him on the Lapstone Zig Zag walking trail commemorating his substantial seven-span, sandstone, Knapsack Viaduct at Lapstone.show more
