Moe - Walhalla line

Pronunciation "Eric - uh". Erica was originally named Upper Moondarra, but was renamed prior to 15/6/1908 to Moondarra, then to Harris (after a local member of parliament) prior to the line opening. In 1914 it was renamed Erica after the local mountain.




Peter Medlin reports a locomotive shed road in 1908 shown above. The station had extensive sidings to serve the Forest's Commission timber mill which were opened in 1941 (see below).
