It's not near Jimbour nor is it Bell, however that is the closest guess yet. Read back over the guesses and clues, and you should be able to get it...

The crossing of Cattle Creek a few km's south of Bell - between Bell and Kaimkillenbun?

Google Maps to the rescue for a non Queenslander!!

There are rails in the grass here (and probably snakes too, so i did not go closer!!).

Don't be misled by the "embankment" - the rails are in the grass in the foreground.

Coolac?

Yes, it is Coolac.

The embankment in the background is the Hume Highway bypass where is crosses over the branch. Unfortunately with the amount of grass it is difficult to discern the line, even from the embankment. The old Level Crossing at Coolac took me three attempts to locate, and even then it is just some rails showing amongst the roadside growth.

There are also some ex-SAR "Super Chooks" in a property almost behind where I took the photo.



Over to 7334.
