A view looking towards Melbourne showing the remains of the carriage dock, 1981.

A down goods passes the up home departure signals and has the auto staff exchanger lowered. Feb 16 1982

Whilst running this train, T 367 - 750t on Ararat to Murtoa goods, we were put away at Great Western
for a cross so I took a shot from the signal mast. With CTC, Great Western was wiped off the railway map although
a new crossing loop several miles from here still bears its name. Feb 3 1982

Looking west from the road overbridge at the east end of the station, C 503 powers away from Great Western
on a Serviceton to Melbourne "jet" in 1981.

An up goods stands in #2 road, 1978.

Great Western was the first decent sized crossing loop west of Ararat so saw its fair share of trains crossing. Here we see a down goods hauled by S 309
sitting in #2 road while C 508 rushes past on an up goods.

Looking west from just in front of the station building, 1981.

Seppelt's siding was a very short distance on the Melbourne side of Great Western and served the Seppelt winery siding.
