My apologies, 5915. It is indeed Coolabah.
  5915 Chief Commissioner

Thanks Jibbonpoint.

Just for something different and a somewhat wetter place than Coolabah - where is this?

Was my first thought, but is there any railway archaeology there?

King River, Tasmania?

The answer to that appears to be YES.

Take a look at this screen print from Google Earth

To get to the location go to Strahan and work up river.

Or just go to 42.11.50.09 S and 145.26.48.20 E

Yes, in that area there was the Queenstown area to Kellys Basin (South end of Macquarie Harbour) built by the North Lyall mine to move its ore to the coast. This could be a bridge on that line...

Pictured is the old quarter mile bridge across King River taken from the newer structure on the West Coast Wilderness Railway.

Take it away Spletsie.

Thanks 5915.

It looked familiar from my trip on the West Coast Wilderness Railway.

Where are we now?

Thanks Spletsie. I remember passing Bangalow some years ago after it had closed and someone had maintained the flowers & garden on the station at that time. It was spectacular.

After a few hours battling with photobucket, I am able to offer this:-

Recollect there was a standard gauge siding there for the Army which is long since gone but don't know that it crossed any roads.

When was your photo taken 5915? I think I remember the bridge, but thought it had fallen down when I was there in 2010. I could be wrong though, I often am! Smile

Picture taken last Friday afternoon! (May 19).  Pictured toward centre of frame is the original bridge taken from the newer structure (section in left foreground).
