Inner Circle Railway Line

Inner Circle Railway Line

The Inner Circle was a steam era suburban railway line (later electrified) in Melbourne, Australia. It served the inner-northern suburbs of Parkville, Carlton North, Fitzroy North, and Fitzroy. At its closure, it ran from Royal Park station on the Upfield line (Melway map ref: 29 F11.) to the west, to a three-way intersection with Rushall and Merri stations on today's South Morang line to the east. (Melway map ref: 30 D11.) There was also a branch line to Fitzroy that opened at the same time.

Famous quotes containing the words line, circle and/or railway:

    For a woman to get a rewarding sense of total creation by way of the multiple monotonous chores that are her daily lot would be as irrational as for an assembly line worker to rejoice that he had created an automobile because he tightened a bolt.
    Edith Mendel Stern (1901–1975)

    Perchance we may,
    Where now this night is day,
    And even through faith of still averted feet,
    Making full circle of our banishment,
    Amazed meet;
    Coventry Kersey Dighton Patmore (1823–1896)

    Her personality had an architectonic quality; I think of her when I see some of the great London railway termini, especially St. Pancras, with its soot and turrets, and she overshadowed her own daughters, whom she did not understand—my mother, who liked things to be nice; my dotty aunt. But my mother had not the strength to put even some physical distance between them, let alone keep the old monster at emotional arm’s length.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)
