History of the Lomandra

An old train line actually ran from Camp Mountain through Samford Conservation Park and into Ferny Grove from the years 1918 to 1947. It was closed, however, following a tragic accident that happened on Labor Day. The train derailed and unfortunately caused 16 people to die and left 38 others wounded. Today, you can ride the Samford Rail Trail or walk the Samford Cycle Path, starting from the Ferny Grove Railway Station.
