Frank McGuire and Des Jowett give us some interesting historical snippets about the Mordialloc Frankston railway line. It was in July 1882 that the line from Mordialloc to Frankston was officially opened. Thomas Bent was there and announced to all the assembled crowd that two trains would be leaving Frankston for Melbourne from Monday to Friday at 7.17am and 3.55pm. He said there would be trains on Saturday, but no service on Sundays. How things have changed.
