Near Muntalpa tunnel on the Cooyar branch?

Yes! It's at the northern end of the tunnel, the lower end of the steel steps are 5m behind me, looking north.

You have the road.


I'll post the rest of the photos later.
  5915 Chief Commissioner

Thanks GrahamH.  I have been to the Muntalpa tunnel but not viewed it on the north side.  Date on photo, fresh growth on lantana and trees all were good clues to the location.

To keep the momentum going I declare open floor.

Where is it?

Terowrie?

Deepwater?

It isn't Terowrie, but @5915 has it with Deepwater! I thought you might get that one, over to you.
  5915 Chief Commissioner

Thanks Graham4405.

Brick facing limited the lines this could be found on.  I have meant to stop and have a look at the Deepwater Station over the years since the line closed but have never got around to it.  Good to see some of the infrastructure still in place after 32 years.

Alas no suitable photos this time so Open Floor again.

Had a very nice burger in the servo at Deepwater that day and took a few shots around the yard. I was interested to note a big John Holland Rail sign on the station building warning people to stay away (after I had taken my shots). Made me wonder if JHR have plans for the line or the site.

Seems to still be Open Floor, so have a go at this one.  Obviously it's a bridge over a creek, but which creek, and between which two former stations?

HINT - it's in Queensland.

Struggling with this one. More clues may help?
  5915 Chief Commissioner

Herberton?

  Lad_Porter Chief Commissioner

I was about to give some more clues, but Herberton is close enough.  It's a bridge over the Peterson Creek (a tributary of the Barron River) near Yungaburra, on the line between Tolga and Yungaburra.  The bridge was built in 1958, when the track was re-routed to make way for the Tinaroo Falls dam, but then the line was closed in 1964.

Over to 5915.
  5915 Chief Commissioner

Thanks Lad Porter.  It was a bit of a wild guess having only been up that way 2 or 3 times but I figured it had to have been a semi-tropical location.

In the interests in keeping the forum going I declare an open floor.

No bites, so a clue (these are going to be difficult on this one, too easily given away):

It is narrow gauge (1067mm).

I had worked out it was 3'6".... It's probably in the Downs region... A closed line with intact track, so a WSITD, Photographer has Hendon behind and facing Allora where the line first meets the Warwick Allora rd?

Is it the Inglewood to Texas area?

It is not. So not Hendon/Allora or Inglewood/Texas.
