Inland Railway - Construction Phase

  M636C Minister for Railways

no connection at Stockinbingal with east west line
There are exactly the same connections at Stockinbingal as there are now.

Westbound trains can turn north at Stockinbingal and southbound trains can turn east.

Southbound trains going west and eastbound trains turning north have to reverse in Stockinbingal yard.

Eastbound trains may turn south at Stockinbingal. Westbound trains can only turn south by running around at Stockinbingal and backing out onto either the lines north or west.

The only flyover at Stockingbingal is that for Burley Griffin Way.

SSR have run trains to Newcastle via Gulgong reversing at Stockinbingal but clearly don't do it often enough to justify a direct connection.

In the Stockinbingal to Parkes (S2P) section, the Daroobalgie crossing loop between Forbes and Parkes, has been fast-tracked with construction due to start next year.

Recently checked out the new Y link west of Goobang Junction including the intermodal terminal works. Parkes is on a roll.

Checking this entire thread, the following useful tabulation could not be found. Inland Rail (IR) uses these succinct abbreviations (such as "T2A Tottenham to Albury) extensively and RailPagers are recommended to use the same. The table below would have straighter columns if a common width font can be used, most fonts being of non-standard widths for each character. The 13 sections of the IR are:
