West Wyalong perhaps ?

Nope, not Urana. It is on that side of the Great Divide, though and it is in NSW.  This line is open with regular freight. Just checking Countrylink; it seems that there's no passenger rail, coach only.

Sorry Rodo, not West Wyalong either (Looks like our posts crossed)

7334 has done it again! I thought that I'd have to drop in a few more clues but there you go.

Thanks jibbonpoint.  

I was working on the assumption that freight meant something other than wheat which ruled out most of the branch lines and it did not seem to fit anywhere on the Stockinbingal to Parkes line.  Thanks to RolfeWorld giving the opening dates for lines it was possible to work out which locations had been a terminus for a while.  My first thought was Gulgong but it did not look right.

This might be really easy but where was it?

Coal stage in rolling grassland with semaphores about ?     >   Demondrille had all that, had even more once.

Rodo

That is it.  

I have an old Instamatic photo somewhere taken from the road bridge at Demondrille about 1968 which shows it all.  This photo dates from the early 70s.

While Rodo gets a pic, I've a question regards the location of the turntable site. I'm curious, because it was something I missed during my visit there last August; granted that that might have been prior to the Shire getting out there with the slasher.

Referencing via Google Maps, and the road in the background, I'm guessing it may have been near the Down end of the yard, adjacent to the Whiteley St levelxing.

Here's a pic of the current day yard diagram:

May now be archaelogical scrap or rebuilt.

It is in Whitely Street & you can just make out that brickwork from Streetview in Google but I can't seem to paste here from Photbucket. It is on the level Crossing side of the station. I'll keep truying to upload the Streetview.

I thought it was a rolling piece of archaeology but the location is working but historic. Jibbo is indeed correct it is at Junee Workshops.
maybe I should in future show purely archaeological locations.

Neither Woodstock nor Bolivia. This station is on a branch line. Closed, of course. Smile

Rosewood (Tumbarumba branch)?
  jibbonpoint Chief Commissioner

Location: Shoalhaven
Not Rosewood, Bolivia or Woodstock. In fact none are close to this place which I suppose is a clue of sorts. It is a reasonable sized town of about 1000.
