Apart from the satellite dish and electrical wiring
this railway station appears to be abandoned.
Situated among gold fields of yesteryear
Google indicates that it is a bona fide
Country railway line in spring.
The line is still in use carrying one or two
goods trains each day and an occasional
tourist passenger steam train.
A country railway crossing.
About 200 kilometres west of Geelong
this was what was left of my hometown
railway station in 2013.
Only one building remains along the platform.
The line opened in 1890 and closed in 1977.
In my teen years we only ever collected
bagged superphosphate (fertiliser) at the station
and delivered wool bales for transport
to Geelong or Melbourne selling centres.
Somewhere there are photos of Dad’s truck
delivering our last wool clip to the station.
The station master’s house (out of camera left)
is still occupied by the station master’s daughter,
her husband and family.
