Good views of trains departing west from Ballarat Station
The station is located on the Ballarat line and serves both freight and passenger functions. Passenger services originating and terminating at Wendouree, Ararat and Maryborough also pass through the station on the journey to or from Melbourne. The extensive building complex is of major architectural and historical significance to Ballarat and Victoria with most of its original 19th century features intact. Preserved historic features include the largest surviving interlocking mechanical swing gates in Victoria at Lydiard Street, signal boxes and goods sheds and it is one of only three stations in Victoria to have had a 19th-century train shed (along with Geelong and St Kilda)

Located on the Hume Highway. Location is only good if trains are parked in yard. Weekdays there is a bit of action there as well. Parking is in Murry St, (From Enfield). Good spot, you don't have to wait for hours, you just have to drive and have a look. The spot is good in the morning and good all day on a rainy day.

Enter off Sims Street. Junction for trains heading to North Dynon and South Dynon/Southern Cross station. Western entrance to the Pacific National loco provisioning centre. Location provides good views of trains in both directions, with plenty of signals to give advance warning of approaching trains.
Opened in 1964 by the Victorian Railways, as a replacement for North Melbourne loco depot. South Dynon loco depot is the servicing, maintenance and operations point for the majority of broad and standard gauge diesel locomotives in use in Victoria. EMD powered locomotives are the workshop's core business for maintenance, although ALCo products are occasionally maintained in the site's facilities. Due to privatisation of the rail freight and passenger services in the late 1990's, the site passed into the control of private rail operators and/or maintenance companies. Currently, the main shed at Dynon is occupied by EDi on the southern side, and Bombardier on the northern side. The former Dynon Car Shed is now occupied by Gemco (formerly Rail Technical Support, or RTS), who also perform diesel maintenance for varying customers. Note: New generation United Group built locomotives (NR's, 93's etc.) are serviced at a motive power provisioning facilty near Dock Link Road, and maintained at a specially-built facility in Spotswood, Victoria.
