ABOVE: Ravenswood was opened by 1874, 12 years after the Bendigo line was opened, in contrast to practically all the stations on the Bendigo line which were grandiose affairs built with bluestone, Ravenswood would have looked at home on any branchline with its timber platforms and sad little office/signalbox. This view is looking towards Bendigo. The up platform was abolished during April 1971, photo date 1970.
