As you can see in the picture, the station site is in a cutting. I'm looking to the up. To the right is what I'm told wa a gravel pit. Behind me to the left is the platform.

Why VR built this in a cutting stumps me, as a 1/2 mile in either direction would have put it in fairly flat ground.

No takers? Wow...

I don't have any other photos that will help, so I'll toss out a couple of clues.

The next station down was the terminus for a few years. There was a passenger service which ceased in the mid 1950's but the line stayed open until the mid 1980's.

Not Baarmutha either

To my west, the original line was relayed to go around a new piece of infrastructure that was given the same name as the station.

And it is Waranga. I'm surprised there's practically zero info on it. Looks like an interesting site.

T347, you've got the ticket.

Don't think it is this but I'll go with one of the trestles up from the Curdies River on the Timboon line.

RustyRick, where is that Waranga site in relation to the main road? From when I last visited the area, I would guess not readily visible...

For T347's pic, the bridge looks like a one-time overline bridge on the Cudgewa line, about 1km Down from the site of Koetong & the Boggy Ck trestle.

If you head east from Rushworth to Murchison, you'll see Harriman Rd to the left, with blue signs pointing to Harriman Point. About 500m further to the left is Little Bourke St. This is the access road to the station. Once you get to the head of the track, the site becomes obvious. Just take it easy as there's a couple of houses up there and they don't expect people to be driving up that way.

As a side point, the Shire has started building the bike track over the old formation from Murchison, and they've got to Hammond.

There is a railway here, the camera is in the 4 foot looking in the down direction. The tree is in the middle of the line.
