Last Train from Mornington
From the late 1880s, the train would run from Melbourne to Baxter and then branch off, stopping at Moorooduc and then Mornington. Patrons would alight at Mornington and be taken by carriages to the beach and town. The original Mornington station site (above) was sold by the Victorian government in 1989 and a shopping centre is now built over it.
The Mornington railway line was a rural railway branching off from the Stony Point railway line at Baxter. The line operated for 92 years from 1889 to 1981. Ten years later the line was reopened as a heritage railway.
