Some quick notes on this unused – but still there – station.
Just beside the Millers Road overpass on the Geelong (& main Werribee??) train line. East of the overpass, that is, towards Williamstown.
“Paisley was built as a wayside station on the Geelong line some time in the 1920′s. It was just a platform with no building or fence for many years. When the line to Werribee was electrified about 1983, Paisley had an island platform and station building, but there was very little traffic using it., In 1985 the Werribee trains were diverted through Altona and Westona to Laverton and the station (as well as Galvin at Maidstone St) were closed to traffic.” Source: http://www.railpage.com.au/f-t11343618.htm
My 2014 Photos
I took these rushed shots, in the rain with (I found out later) a faulty lens on the Sony Nex-6 camera. Ah well, treat them as snapshots:
Above: From the Millers Rd overpass, looking East towards Williamstown
Above: from Ross Road, looking ~South. The fence isn’t that big here. But it would be dangerous to jump it.
To try and find some old photos of it when it was active.
