The Old Wendouree Station was immediately to the west of the Forest Street railway crossing. Back in the mid seventies there was a platform for both up and down tracks. On schooldays, the Linton rail motor and trailer serviced the station for the benefit of pupils who attended the nearby Ballarat Grammar school.
And now for a bit of reminiscing:
When driving to work during the late 70's, I often saw the rail motor pulling out of Wendouree as I turned left into Howitt St. This meant that I would have to wait for the train at the Creswick Road level crossing. This was usually a good gunzel experience, because around that time of day K157 would often be coming "off the pit" from the loco shed at the Ballarat Nth workshops, right next to Creswick Rd. On a frosty morning the plume of smoke and steam could be seen from about a kilometre away.
Further useless information:
The gates at the Forest St level crossing were locked at night and I think even on Sundays, when there were very few trains on the line. There was a gatekeepers cottage fronting Forest St in a tiny allotment behind the down platform. On the Sunday night 3BA country music request show, nearly every week a request would come in from "George and Olga at the Forest St. railway gates".
