A 280 hp Walker railmotor is seen here crossing the Brankeet Creek bridge approaching Bonnie Doon whilst running an up Mansfield to Spencer Street service.
This is most likely the 7.40 am out of Mansfield which was timetabled out of Bonnie Doon at 8.05 am.
(Bonnie Doon's up home signal can be seen in the extreme right hand part of the photo)
This part of the Mansfield line was re-routed when the Eildon weir was enlarged.
