Toad is right. It is at Wakool by the cool waters of the Wakool River. It is my own shot (with beaut Ford) taken when the line was still in use.

I think that I sent a copy to Rolfe.

Sorry about the delay, I have not been here since I set out to journey to WA. Pictures will come later.

A little siding on the western side of the main line/platform road, long since disconnected. There's some manner of industrial gas depot (oxy, acetylene, etc) on the other side of the gates.

5915, you have the staff for the next section.

Thanks Wurx - was a wild guess but I thought the vegetation was definitely coastal.

This one is not - Where is it?

Wyreema to Gowrie jt



  RAYMOND
  5915 Chief Commissioner

Raymond has it close enough.  Location is near Wellcamp on the original line from Toowoomba to Hendon opened in 1879.  The Drayton deviation opened in 1915 allowed traffic to head directly south from Toowoomba to Warwick and beyond rather than the original route which took trains west to Gowrie Junction then south through Wellcamp, Westbrook and Wyreema.

Ironically, the location from which the photograph taken was immediately opposite the QRN (Aurizon) freight depot in Heinemann Rd.

Over to Raymond.
