An up goods has been backed out onto the Jeparit line as it awaits departure. In later days trains on the Western line
were often too long for the existing facilities. For really long trains there were very few crossing loops where they would fit
and often the only way to get long trains out of the way was to put them away on a branch line. May 1978

Dimboola's down distant signal. Like many distant signals it was motor operated due to
