Line Guide - Geelong Showgrounds Siding[edit]

According to the Melway the showgrounds is on the right of the rail line when travelling east making it a right hand branch rather than a left. Anyone agree? disagree? Or was the siding really on the north side of the line? Cheers -- Rick69p 12:35, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

The Geelong Showgrounds are definitely on the right hand side of the rail line when travelling east. Not sure on the answer to your other question however, sorry. -- Longhair\talk 12:45, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
Paul and Kathleen Kenny's Trains, Troops and Tourists book (2004) mentions little is known about the siding. [snip] Opened 22 October 1891, closed 30 October 1907.The Geelong Historical Society magazine Investigator, September 1978, mentions the siding was at the 47.5 mile post, just east of the St Albans Road level crossing, simple earthen construction with wooden edging. No mention of what side it was on though. Wongm 06:00, 19 September 2007 (UTC)
If I recall rightly, wasn't the showgrounds at a different site at the time? Rebecca 09:21, 19 September 2007 (UTC)
It has been in a few spots: from Geelong Showgrounds the second site (which had the siding built for it) ran south from Ormond Road to St Albans Road. The siding closed when the show grounds moved to the racecourse, and moved to current site in the 1950s. Wongm 03:45, 20 September 2007 (UTC)
