You suspect right, Valvegear. It is indeed Yarram - looking towards Melbourne.  My photo was taken in 1987, about six months before the line was closed.

Staff to Valvegear.

Thanks L-1172.

Due to Valvegear's advanced age and photographic ineptitude, he has to declare OPEN FLOOR.

Brunswick Street level crossing - Inner Circle railway at Fitzroy?

Not Brunswick Street, but as Scotchmer Street is only two crossings away that's near enough.

Thanks mikesyd. I had a go recently with one of my pics so I'll declare 'open floor' so someone else can have a go.

I live very near this old crossing on Scotchmer Street and it is a bit of a problem. It is part of a combined foot and bike path, and there seems to be lot of people that believe that it's a pedestrian crossing, and that cars have to stop. I have seen a few near misses there. I keep going carefully,  and use the horn if necessary - not because I want to hog the road, but because I don't want old people, kids et al lulled into a false sense of security by a mistaken belief that every driver has to stop.

Lets try this one. Those rails were last used a bit over 20 years ago.

RustyRick has it with Puralka. The "station" site is in the background, a loop still hides amongst the growth too.
Taken last Monday.
