AVís & BVís, built in the late 1890ís, were mainly stored here. Apart from
the occasional Vintage Train, their only other use was the 7:10 pm Sunday night
pass to Leongatha. You could ride this train to Tooradin and cross to the
opposite returning train, also AV/BV, which had left Leongatha at 6:55 pm. I
did this in 1967 when it was hauled by T323 and joined the other set, hauled by
T393, back to
Frank Loftus, who lived at Leongatha in the mid 1960ís, recalls this train. Click here for his story.

The Caulfield Cup Race Specials trains were stored on the goods line which paralleled the Frankston line from Caulfield to the Glen Huntly goods sidings. This track was mainly used by local goods trains shunting at both places and often hauled by E-class electric locos. In the early 1980ís it was upgraded and extended becoming the third line to Moorabbin.
