Raymond,

This one is a real puzzle, so we need a clue.

Ok, I will cross the border to the remains of the old South Coast line and say it is the old pylon of a bridge about West Burleigh. I thought that wooden trestles were mostly used there but perhaps larger streams may have used such early style pylons.

It is in Qld,in the middle of a city,It did belong to the railway dept and was  a accentual part of steam engine running.

Location: Gladstone, Queensland
````No ,not the Burnett in Bndaberg.



RAYMOND

Well then Raymond, seeing as though Bundaburg is the only big city between Gladstone and Maryborough I will say it is part of an old alignment over the Yellow Waterholes Creek on the south edge of that city.
  raymond Deputy Commissioner

Clue time,It is not a bridge pier.and it is not in yellow waterholes Creek.

I am sorry that I still cannot get the image up but the link should do the job.

I prefer photos of the archaeology when it was in full flight.
