Sunbury electrification project

Electrification of the Bendigo line between Sydenham and Sunbury started in 2008, and was completed in 2012. Diggers Rest and Sunbury stations were upgraded, a new stabling yard built at the end of the line, overhead wires were installed above the tracks, and four new traction substations were built.

Portal structures south of Calder Park Drive, so that a future station can be built

Dodgy level crossing at Diggers Rest: Diggers Rest-Coimadai Road and Calder Highway

Turn right out of this road when a train is coming, and you'll almost drive around the lowered boom gates
