Bairnsdale Wharf spur?

Sale Wharf.
  kitchgp Chief Commissioner

Bairnsdale Wharf Line it is.

1. 1.6 km (1 mile). Opened July 1888. Closed 1942 or July 1949
2.  In fact there wasn’t even a run round capability. The intermediate sidings and the end siding were all dead-end.
3. There was no platform and given its closing date unlikely to have been visited by fan trips. How passengers got from the wharf, eg SS Gippsland, to Bairnsdale station is moot. Sale Wharf Line (or Sale Canal Line).
4. Bairnsdale
5. Sale Wharf Line
6. Bairnsdale.

One example of shipping on the lakes. The SS Gippsland (1908 - 1937) ran a daily, ex Sun, service from Lakes Entrance via Kalimna, Metung and other points. It departed Lakes Entrance about 9am and Bairnsdale about 3pm, connecting with the Melbourne train. The trip took about 3 hours. On Sundays it ran excursion trips from Bairnsdale. It carried passengers and cargo, mainly fish. From Victorian Railways.Net website:

Thanks, kitchgp.  A testing teaser.

We're now looking for a station that began as a terminus, became a through station and finished as a terminus.
