This view of Castlemaine was taken about 1912, it shows a down passenger train arriving with an A2 and very new E cars.
A train to Maryborough or Maldon is seen in the back platform.

A very early view, probably not long after opening, looking towards Melbourne. In 1914 the yard was greatly expanded with tracks occupying the area on the right. Photo courtesy State Library Victoria.

This view is looking east with the goods shed on the left and the platforms on the right. Like the previous photo, I'm guessing it was taken not too long after opening.
