Finding the Maldon – Dombarton bridge to nowhere

South of Sydney there is a bridge to nowhere, built in the 1980s as part of the never-completed Maldon – Dombarton railway line.

So how did I go about seeing the bridge for myself?

Welcome to Melbourne Central station, where on Wednesday night the first of Ted Baillieu’s Protective Services Officers started duty, protecting passengers from the hoards of evildoers who descend on the station after 6 PM. Meanwhile at the next station over, some vandals managed to make their way into Parliament station after the last train, and spray paint the walls with graffiti. So how the hell did they get in there?
