SUNSHINE

The "Greaser" was a train that lubricated the overhead wires, it ran over every suburban track about once a month. It is seen here arriving Sunshine on its way to St. Albans. Nov. 27 1985.


Sunshine, looking towards Melbourne. I believe this photo was taken to show construction of the overpass that would eliminate the Hampshire Road level crossing in preparation for the Melbourne to Albury standard gauge line (opened 1962). The standard gauge goes behind the up station building (building on the left) The overpass was opened (and the interlocked gates abolished) on Aug 20 1961.
