The heritage signalling at the Ballarat train station was spotted being removed last week - but trainspotters should know they'll be back in better nick soon.
A V/Line spokesperson confirmed the structures are being taken down for refurbishment and will be reinstalled soon.
"These important works will allow us to maintain these heritage structures while ensuring they don't impact the operation of train services," they said in a statement.
"We thank passengers for their patience while we work hard to complete as much maintenance as possible while coaches are replacing trains on the Ballarat line."
The refurbishments are part of the $3.9 million package of upgrade works along the line.
A signal mast will be taken away from the site and repaired before it is reinstalled at a later date, while crews will also complete minor maintenance on the signal gantry structure.
Heritage Victoria has issued a permit for these works to take place.
