North Geelong Yard 9 & Nth Geelong C Signal Box, c 1978

This and the previous six were all taken from the same signal mast. This photo is looking towards Geelong 'C' Signal Box, which can be seen in the distance.

 

The line on the left is the main line to Gheringhap and Ballarat / Ararat tracks.

 

The line next to it is referred to as the Folly, as it was part of the double line to Ballarat and it was considered a Folly to remove the double line to Ballarat. It was a hinderance in the war years as it meant war traffic was held up.

 

The points leading off to the the left is the now closed Fyansford Cement Line.
