Old railway buffer stop

High Camp, Victoria, Australia (Mitchell Shire)

Old railway buffer stop
.

Hiding in overgrowth a hundred metres past the High Camp station site is this old wooden buffer, which was used to retard or stop a train that tried to proceed beyond the end of the track. The Heathcote line closed in 1968. This photo was taken at night, lit only by a near full moon. The stop is not visible from the road even during daylight, so locating it in the dark was an interesting challenge.
