Last train on Outer Circle railway, 1895

The Outer Circle railway line was an unsuccessful public transport initiative of the 1880s and 1890s. The section of the line terminating at Oakleigh connected passengers to Waverley Road, near today's Darling Station on the Glen Waverley line.

Former Inner Circle Line - Parkville: 1988 - 2014

These two images show the former line between The Avenue and Royal Parade road bridges. After the line officially closed in 1981 the rail lines and sleepers were removed in 1983.
