ABOVE: Korong Vale in 1885 looking north. The loco is a rebuilt J class 2-4-0. At the extreme right is what looks like a carriage dock for loading horse drawn carriages onto special flat wagons which were then attached to passenger trains, a service only able to afforded by the wealthy. The railway reached Korong Vale in 1882

ABOVE: The home signal indicates that T 341 was departing Korong Vale to the Boort line but I can't remember if this is what was happening or if T 341 was just shunting. The two tracks on the left were called the "engine sidings" Jan. 1980

ABOVE: Korong Vale "A" controlled two sets of interlocked gates due to it being located between the two main running lines. Korong Vale was fully interlocked in 1916 which is when this box was built. It was abolished in 1983. Photo Feb. 16 1974 Photo courtesy John Ward
