The green shed is on the remains of the Railway Wharf at Bellerive. The wharf originally extended into the water as a timber construction, with the station on the end of the wharf, where ferries from Hobart arrived.
These two wagons are on display on formation of the railway yard at Bellerive.
At Bellerive, the railway followed the line of the road which has been built on the formation. There were sidings, a goods shed, and loco shed in this area.
The current Bligh Street follows the route of the Railway after it crossed Roslyn Hill Road. The original railway cutting has been widened to accomodate the road.
The route of the railway can be easily followed between The Turning and Mornington, from where the righ-of-way crosses Dampier Street.
