Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Frankston railway line is a bayside suburban electrified railway in Melbourne, Australia. The line runs from the Melbourne City Loop to Frankston and continues on to Stony Point as the Stony Point line. Apart from suburban electric trains, the line is used by goods trains to and from the Steel mills near Hastings. The Frankston line is part of Melbourne's Metcard integrated ticketing system in Zones 1 & 2. The Frankston line runs south from Caulfield, functioning from the main line to Pakenham and Gippsland, and runs through built-up areas for its entire length. From Mentone the line is never more than about 1 kilometre from the eastern shore of Port Phillip, and runs alongside the Nepean Highway for much of its length. After Caulfield, the line traverses flat country and has fairly minor earthworks, and has numerous level crossings. The level crossing near Glenhuntly railway station is one of Melbourne's four crossings with tram tracks, and the only one with three railway tracks crossing two tramway tracks.show more
