I have some conflicting opening dates of this line - 1889 and 1891. Does anybody know the truth? Cnwb 22:37, 6 Dec 2004 (UTC)
According The Whittlesea Railway by Robert Aquilina, the Reservoir to Whittlesea section was opened on December 20, 1889. Lokicarbis 11:28, Dec 30, 2004 (UTC)
Which is the branch?
- Why is Epping considered to be a branch off the Hurstbridge line and not the other way around? • Leon 01:31, 30 September 2006 (UTC)
- Perhaps because Hurstbridge is the longer line? I would usually go for the branch being the later one to open, but in this case, the first sections of both lines opened on the same day, so the choice would be arbitrary. Philip J. Rayment 02:32, 30 September 2006 (UTC)
Orphaned references in South Morang railway line
I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of South Morang railway line's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT⚡ 13:02, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
