Melbourne June 2016
« on: April 11, 2016, 01:33:00 PM »
Heading down to Melbourne for a week at the end of June.

Looking at Albury and Maryborough for a couple of Vline excursions.

Be a good opportunity to photograph the Caulfield - Oakleigh rail corridor too before it is consigned to history so to speak.

=====================

Maryborough railway station, Victoria

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maryborough_railway_station,_Victoria



The current station building was erected in 1890 with 25 rooms and a clock tower, of red brick with stucco trimming. In 1895, Mark Twain visited Maryborough, which he dryly observed as being: "A railway station with a town attached". The station closed on 12 September 1993 when the Vinelander was withdrawn and replaced by road coaches.

In 2006/07 Maryborough station was restored, with repairs to the towers, clock, facade, portico, roof and guttering. Stage 2 included slating, rendering, glazing and moulding repairs to match the works conducted during the first stage of works.

In December 2008 as part of the Victorian Transport Plan, the State Government announced passenger rail services to Maryborough would resume. Services between Maryborough and Ballarat commenced in July 2010

Maryborough railway station is the terminal station of the Mildura line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the town of Maryborough opening in 1874.

Maryborough is a major junction with cross country routes to Moolort and Ararat. The Avoca line from Ararat is standard gauge and dual gauge track that runs through Maryborough to the north as far as Dunolly. There are the remains of dock platforms at both ends of the main platform.

Albury railway station

> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albury_railway_station

Quote
Albury railway station is located on the New South Wales/Victorian border city of Albury. Designed and constructed under the supervision of John Whitton, it opened on 26 February 1882, replacing a temporary structure, which opened on 3 February 1881, when the Main South line was extended from Gerogery. The premiers of both New South Wales and Victoria attended the official opening of the 1881 station, marking the first time in Australian history that two colonial premiers had appeared together publicly.

By 1873, the Victorian line was complete as far as Wodonga, and so a rail trip between Sydney and Melbourne required the use of a short stagecoach connection to cross the Murray River. The Victorian Railways' broad gauge line from Wodonga opened on 14 June 1883.

The New South Wales Government Railways were built to the standard gauge, which meant travellers in both directions had to change trains at Albury. This resulted in a 455 metres (1,493 ft) long platform being built to accommodate that move, then the longest in Australia.

In April 1962, a new standard gauge line to Melbourne's Spencer Street station opened, and thus the Intercapital Daylight, Southern Aurora and Spirit of Progress began to operate without the need to change trains. However, the Riverina Express continued to terminate at Albury until November 1993, with passengers transferring to V/Line services to continue into Victoria.

Albury had extensive transshipment facilities, with all freight also required to be transferred. Later, a bogie change facility was opened. It also featured locomotive and carriage depots. Much of the yard was demolished to make way for the Hume Highway bypass in 2005. Albury also had a refreshment room, which closed in August 1975.

Buses replacing trains between Caulfield and Moorabbin Jun 24 - Jul 31.

Might check it out!   :P  Not sure if there is enough buses in Melbourne to service this ..

I have heard a lot of regular FKN line locals have alternate travel plans for the closure

Then travelled to Maryborough as planned.

Rail to Castlemaine then Coach to Marborough. 

Return journey our VLocity for the return journey had failed earlier at Sunbury so was offered the option of an Express coach from Castlemaine to SC, with only one stop at Malmsbury.  Arrival at SC was much the same as the train would have been.

Went for some bus and tram rides yesterday.  Today, heading off to Wyndham Harbour for 10am ferry service to Docklands.

No problems with myki on bus, tram or rail.  Seems to be more responsive these days.  Fares are as cheap as chips in reality too!
