G'day everyone, Is anyone able to tell me when the through route between Melbourne Junction in Derby and Chellaston Junction (which was located on the Stenson Junction - Sheets Stores Junction line) closed? I know for definite that it was still open in 1969 when Derby Power Box was opened but that's really all I do know. On page 47 of the Ian Allan Greeen Diesel Years book there is an excellent photo taken of Chellaston and Swarkestone and the description seems to suggest that the line survived until 1980 along with the branch to Melbourne. Can anyone confirm whether this is true and if so how the line managed to survive for so long? Kind regards, Richmond Commuter!
