Featuring the picturesque Greensborough to Hurstbridge line, this DVD shows and explains the heritage Staff and Ticket and Electric Staff safeworking systems in regular daily use and then on their respective last days of operation. Semaphore signals, signal boxes using mechanical interlocking and ground level point indicators were worked by railwaymen and women. As such it was of immense historic significance. Between 2008 and 2013 the heritage systems were replaced by LED signals, electric motors and computer control in a major upgrade modernising the railway. Trackside and cab footage shows the picturesque line to advantage. The steam hauled specials for the annual Hurstbridge Wattle Festival are also featured creating an educational and informative DVD.
