The 1928 Country Lines Services timetable on the victorianrailways.net website lists passenger services to all of the suggestions, Woodside, Wedderburn, Orbost, Coleraine, Waubra, Stony Crossing (Poonboon), Casterton, Timboon, Mansfield, Cudgewa, Balranald, Katamatite & Briagolong, plus many others. It would be an interesting exercise (nightmare perhaps) calculating the number of VLocitys and Sprinters required to implement the timetable today.

Anyhow, the baton passes to Gman_86

BANG!!

Railblogger for the win with Hamilton.

My next clue was to be:
Despite being closed to passenger trains, my station building is still manned by V/Line staff.

This being due to the number of V/Line passenger road coaches running via Hamilton.

That is all a moot point now though, Railblogger, I pass the baton to you.
