St. George’s to Bailey’s Bay
From St. George’s the railway ran through Wellington and up to the North Shore, passing through the oil docks and along Ferry Point to the swing bridge that carried it over Ferry Reach and onto the main island. The line soon reached Bailey’s Bay, a common tourist destination because of its proximity to the Caves and the Furness resort at Castle Harbour.
