In the same year Sir John Grice was taken by road on several occasions to the newly laid section of track from Gembrook to the main-road crossing. Special trains were run on this section on Gembrook market-days. This picture shows Sir John Grice about half-way between the main-road crossing and Gembrook, bound for Gembrook.
