Is this the last double track main line in Australia to use block working and semaphore signals?
Which signal boxes are still in use along this line?
When are these signals and signal box due to be made redundant, and be replaced with centralised train control?
And why don't V line staff like you taking photos of the station and the signals? I tried to snap some pics, but was very quickly advised not to by the station staff on duty. I wasn't trespassing and was only on the platform trying to get a photo of the signals before they all disappear into the pages of history. I'm not accusing the station staff of any wrong doing, I'm just curious as to why they don't like it.
