Burnley?

Ramsden Sreet level crossing should be closed

The gates (If they are still there) shut on road traffic and locked

It's a pretty major road into Clifton Hill....

I think three of the gates are ...

Armadale and Victoria Park? (Melbourne and Perth)

Bittern is, of course, correct.

Staff to RoderickSmith.

Not Dandenong.

The line fron Dandenong to Cranbourne (and on to Tooradin) was opened in 1888.

Thanks, Brendan.

For three points: I became a junction in 1921.

Cable tram relics: Bridge Rd/Hoddle St NE corner (48, 75) engine house;

This building has essentially been demolished. Some brick walls may remain, but they are not of great interest.

Coldstream with the runaway spark?

Not Spencer St & Dynon Road.

The location is the northeast corner Bridge Road and Hoddle Street. The building was the engine house for the Richmond cable tram. Interestingly, the cable tram depot f ...

Thanks, Roderick.

In keeping with the tram theme, where is this intersection? Extra points for identifying the significance of this location.

Undoubtedly it's Cotham Road at Burke Road, Kew opposite the elderly tram shelter. I believe this was the Deepdene crossover and the entrance to the MMBW/Melbourne Water depot is in the background.

Edinburgh Gardens, North Fitzroy?

Guh. The change in loop direction is going to double my journey time. Clifton Hill to Carlton via rail is already a roundabout route, and it's about to get a whole lot worse. Yes, I know - for the gre ...

Drawing a blank on the Queen Elizabeth Sq and tickets.

Moderately sure that this is Queen Elizabeth Plaza:

The siding formed from what remained of the line to Whittlesea on the down side of Epping?

It is indeed between Mooroolbark and Croydon.

Well done, and over to Deep Throat for the next photo.

Thanks, Roderick.

Where did this bit of open windowed mischief take place?

Ah, the perils of simultaneous posting...

Taking another bite at the cherry - Oakleigh?

To me, it looks like either Essendon, Box Hill or Oakleigh. I'll take a stab at Box Hill's old side platform.

Point Ormond?

The MMTB tramway and the VR electric street railway had a H crossing there.

But not in their curent form.

1CS also had some modifications done to it over the years, but they are all original 1937 Spirit of Progress cars.

That also means there are a heck of a lot of rivet ...

North Fitzroy: cable and electric?

Posted 27 Oct 2007 01:00 in Melbourne suburban by Jason R

All interesting answers, but APM Fairfield is correct.

An Elecrail tour ran on that siding in 1996.

Three points and over to Via City Loop for the next quiz.
