Ceremonies have been held in central Victoria to mark 150 years of rail services.
The line between Melbourne and central Victoria cost more than three million pounds to build and the first train arrived in Bendigo in October 1862.
To mark the 150th anniversary, the event was recreated yesterday, complete with a refurbished steam train.
Hundreds of people were on hand in Bendigo and Castlemaine to help celebrate the train's journey north.
The Mt Alexander Shire says the railway line has played a significant role in the area's history.
The Victorian Government says the line remains well-known for features such as the Taradale viaduct and the Big Hill tunnel.
V/Line says there has been a record number of passengers on the line each of the past seven years.
