I lived at McKinnon at the time and the railway station was from where I ventured forth on many a memorable  journey, and to which I returned, tired, dishevelled, usually starving but always glad to be back at “my station”. I got to know the staff fairly well, and spent many pleasant evenings getting acquainted with “Double Line Block”.

What guards did when a train arrived at its destination – go around the back and close the white “end-of-train” disk.
