The Red Hill railway line in Melbourne, Australia, was a rural railway branching off from the Stony Point railway line at Bittern. The line had a fairly short life, opening on 2 December 1921 and closing on 29 June 1953.[1]

Current status[edit]

The line was dismantled some time after it was closed, and most of the line from Bittern to Merricks is now on private property, while the right-of-way from Merricks to Red Hill remains, having been converted to a shared use rail trail.
