Portarlington Bayside Miniature Railway

The Portarlington Bayside Miniature Railway is a miniature railway located on eight hectares of parklands overlooking Port Phillip Bay at Point Richards. The dual 7.25 and 5 inch gauge track forms a single loop around the site, with a four road yard with full semaphore signalling pneumatically controlled by an elevated signal box, a six road engine shed in the centre, and an elevated turntable and locomotive stabling yard to one side.
