A down Ararat to Serviceton roadside goods (hauled by an Australian National 930 class) clatters over the Melbourne end points at Salisbury loop.
As trains got longer in the late 60's the existing crossing facilities were proving inadequate so in 1970 Salisbury loop was built as a pure crossing loop, having no goods sidings. It was equipped with 3 position signals, the points controlled by motors, not manually and a signal panel. It was able to be "switched out" in less busy times thus saving on manpower. photo date 1986
