Kyneton station and signalbox looking towards Bendigo, 2004
A splendid view of Kyneton station looking towards Melbourne. Some things to notice are, the double headed rail, circular point rodding and the
"loco depot" (To be quite honest the coal stage looks like it would be more at home on a narrow gauge line) What looks like ground discs are in
fact "discs attached to points". The buildings on the near end of both platforms are almosr certainly the refreshment rooms that were removed
in the mid 1930's.
The date shown on the border of the photo says May 16 1897.
