Beyond the station, the line continues for a further five kilometres to Dennington, and is used by freight trains.[3] On 26 April 1988, that section officially changed to being worked as a siding, and the train staff previously used for train movements Warrnambool and Dennington was abolished.[4] Beyond Dennington, the line used to continue for a further 37 kilometres to Port Fairy. That section was closed in November 1977.

On 14 July 2008, the siding serving the freight shed at the eastern side of the station was booked out of use and the track was removed.[5] The goods shed itself was demolished in August 2018 due to its poor structural condition.[6]
