Macaulay is the first station past North Melbourne on the Coburg / Upfield line, set in a working class industrial area it is now almost buried under the Citylink freeway. Photo looking towards North Melbourne early 1920's. Interestingly the gas lighting survived electrification at a number of suburban stations.
Due to the nature of "directing arms" the bottom arm, shown at proceed, applied for the straight or mainline movement, the top arm took you through the points towards the yard.
