Fitzroy Line

The Fitzroy Line was a short branch line constructed off the Inner Circle Railway. At one stage there was a possibility this route would be extended directly into Melbourne but this never eventuated after the link via Collingwood was constructed instead.

Due to the circuitous nature of the route to travel what is only a short distance from Melbourne to Fitzroy the station did not last long as a passenger stop. Goods traffic however continued for some time into the early 1980s, serving a briquette siding.
