Description

Portland is a railway station in the town of Portland, Victoria Australia. It is divided into three sections; the removed 'old' station on the waterfront, the disused passenger station and goods yard located further inland, and the freight terminal by the Port of Portland.

History

A new passenger station at Portland was officially opened on June 29, 1968. This replaced the old station on the waterfront. The last passenger train between Ararat and Portland was on September 12, 1981, operated by a DRC railcar.All existing signals at the former station were abolished in 1986. The signal panel, which was located at the Portland Harbour Junction, was relocated to the depot building during this time.
