Fabulous post Kuldalai. Most appreciated. However you have left us wondering about the statement " just vacated signal control centre"
Care to elaborate?
As part of the RRL project V/Line Centrol controls now all signalling from Southern Cross to Waurn Ponds and Southern Cross to Ballarat .
The 9 year old Geelong Signalling Control Centre formerly housed in a non descript concrete block building adjacent to Geelong "A" Box transferred its signalling functions to Centrol last week .
The only mechanical locally signalled functions remaining are at North Geelong "C" and at V/Lines busiest station outside Southern Cross at South Geelong .
North "C" is funded for replacement with motorized points, colour light signals and control from Centrol, but V/Line infrastructure are taking ages to get it constructed . Not to to with passengers so low priotity BLUE HILLS project for VLP.
In the case of South Geelong it can switch out for straight through movements . With over 100 passenger services each Weekday at South Geelong with the new timetable it is high time that the largely existant crossing loop were completed and this last remaining mechanical interlocking in the Geelong area incorporated into Centrol .
