Struggling with this, but are those steel sleepers in the foreground?
  Graham4405 Minister for Railways

Location: Dalby Qld
So, it's not Herberton, Glenmorgan or Goondiwindi.

I'm pretty certain those are steel sleepers on at least the road closest to the camera.

Perhaps another clue:

The line in question closed in 1976. A newer line, still operational, is about 900m to the east.

Pine Creek?

Yep, sure is. Staff to @Lad_Porter.

I was in Pine Creek a couple of years ago, and thought it looked familiar.  I was interested to see how well preserved the old station yard is.

Anyway, here's something different.  It's a disused siding at a disused factory, although the factory is still used as a working museum.  The siding was connected to a main line which is also defunct.

Is it the Wool Scour at Blackall?

From the filename of the pic it would seem so! Wink

Wool scour at/near Blackall is correct.  Need to change file name in future !!!

Anyway, green light to 5915.
  5915 Chief Commissioner

Thanks Lad_Porter.  I had travelled to the wool scour a few years back and did recognize the location.

Alas, no photo to post at the moment so open floor.
