112-1. Drouin-Warragul.

 

112-2. Warragul. Despite the fact that the line to Neerim and Noojee was closed in 1958 and lifted a few years after, the sign on the right still informs intending passengers for that line to disembark and change to the Road Service. Was it tradition, or just a reluctance to admit the reality of a diminished rail service?

112-4. Warragul.
