The railway from Moe to Yallourn was constructed in the 1950's to replace the original branch line, which joined the main line between Moe and Morwell. The new line meant that heavy coal trains didn't have to climb through the Haunted Hills. The new line was subsequently closed in 1986, when briquette production was moved to Morwell.
