Lost Railway Stations - Williamstown Pier

Once upon a time the Williamstown line had one extra station under it's belt - Williamstown Pier.

Built in 1905, this station was the real terminus of the line although it's main use was for the dockyards with grain shipping.

Found on Melways Map 56 F 10, the station was located opposite the Prince of Wales Hotel in Nelson place until it was demolished in 1987 after a derailment occurred on the sharp curve from Williamstown Pier to Williamstown Station.

Ironically it is now a car park.
