An almost forgotten part of the Dandenong Ranges history in Melbourne's outer east is the Scenic Funicular Railway, which was a popular tourist attraction between 1953 and 1961, located on the north face of Mt Dandenong.

Known as the "Vista Trains", it was 3 km from the township of Montrose, on timbered bushland, It was located in the vicinity of what is now 1106 Mt Dandenong Tourist Rd, within what was to become the Dandenong Ranges National Park, at "Windy Corner", near the intersection of Inverness Rd.

Substantially updated since its original publication earlier in 2014, this 24-Chapter Research Project now features a Special Section showing historical images of the early days of the Mt Dandenong Tourist Rd, and images of the dismantling and recovery in 1965 are now included.
