Tale of a goods shed part 2

Just by chance I was looking at Google Maps and zoomed into Horsham station, only to discover that Victrack anti-heritage programme is alive and well. Since my last visit, in August 2014, the Horsham yard office and goods shed have been demolished, and much of the site has been cleaned of rail infrastructure. (Interestingly, the CRT livery class 73 is still there)!!

 The current Google satellite image shows what remains, little more than foundations. It has been acknowledged that the demolition work was carried out after March 2016, and currently, on side note, the goods shed and other rail infrastructure at Warnambool is also currently under threat of being removed, or has gone.

It has been confirmed that the goods shed and yard office were demolished in December 2016. The photo below was posted on Western Victorian Railfan Facebook page by Stuart Cray.
