Where was this?

The points mechanism does not look typically Victorian but I will opt for Blowhard on the Waubra branch.

Not there.

Looks like tablelands country in southern NSW or Vic and a modestly used line.

WSITD Woodhouselee, Crookwell line?

GrahamH's guess was two things.

A WSITD and also spot on!  It is indeed Woodhouselee.

I don't think I have ever seen a point lever like the one in the photo anywhere else.  As far as I can recollect the others followed a different style being mounted on a frame on a stand elevated a bit above the ground.

Staff to GrahamH.

Thanks 7334.

I'm surprised, astonished!! I've never had the chance to investigate the Crookwell line though I did drive Goulburn - Orange twice 20+ years ago.

I remembered noticing these odd point levers somewhere probably on a tour in the early 70s which meant either Canberra line, ie something to do with Captains Flat, or Crookwell line. I opted for Crookwell and picked Woodhouselee as it was ~halfway along.

When were these shots taken? Do you have more online?


I'll get a new shot up tomorrow.

The photos were taken in June 2015 and they are the only ones of Woodhouselee.  I have checked out the Crookwell line in bits and pieces over a long period but I am hopeless at cataloguing photos or even giving them meaningful names.

Some of the photos I have taken are so old as to be on film and would number in the many thousands.  Scanning them is not something I would even contemplate.  Much like many others I suspect.

Unfortunately I am not into social media and none of my digital photos are on line barring the few I have used in WhereIsIt over time.

Benarkin, Wamuran.
Right state.
Wrong places.

A clue.

If one was driving from Wamuran to the location in the photo, Benarkin would be roughly halfway.

For a while I have suspected the Kingaroy line. Puts it about Tingoora then. Smile

Has to be Wondai then!

We have a winner. It certainly is Wondai. Taken near the Murgon end of the yard looking towards Murgon.

Staff to Graham4055.

A few more shots of Wondai. There were more photos to be taken but due to the lateness of the day and also wanting to see the railtrail construction towards Kingaroy.

I do have a photo to put up, but as I'm off to NZ tomorrow I might not be a regular visitor here for a few weeks. So the staff can dangle waiting for someone to pick it up...

I am thinking somewhere around Sydney Airport but it's a guess as to where.
