Creek Sidings

Located on the eastern side of Moonee Ponds Creek next to North Melbourne Station, the Creek Sidings were opened in the 1960s as a dual gauge freight handing terminal for Thomas Nationalwide Transport (TNT). By the 1990s it was used as the depot for Great Northern Rail Services, then as a wagon maintenance facility. The site was cleared in 2012 to make room for the Regional Rail Link project.
