Plus another clue: There is a bridge behind me as I take the photo.

That's it! Staff to @hbedriver.

Bother. No photos available, so whoever can grab a staff out of the instruments has precedence.

Looked vaguely familiar from a visit last year, the scrub fires the strongest clue. And right outside your usual haunts as well, Graham!

Well, it's a long way from home! Grabbed a few RA shots while we were there last year.

Well, it has lasted 3½ months, perhaps a clue?

My memory has failed me again, forgot all about it.

It is the terminus of the line and one of the grain storage facilities along the line is for sale at the moment!!!!

Former passenger platform on my right. Looking towards Cosgrove with the former line to Katamatite behind me.

Thanks bartaxr8.

That was a bit of a WSITD as most archaeology in Victoria has the track removed and anything with it in place limits things a bit while I had been there last year and it looked vaguely familiar.

I suspect someone will either know this immediately or it will take a while.

Thanks 7334. I have nothing to put up at the moment so I'll declare open floor.

Looking a lot like Yinnar.  One of those communities that are to be appreciated for retaining something of their railway heritage instead of bulldozing it out of existence.

Correct.

Thanks bartaxr8.

I do have an image I was hoping to post but I'm afraid it is currently beyond my feeble IT abilities.  I have done it in the past but even the Railpage FAQ is not getting me there today.

So, Open Floor....

This one might be a bit harder:

What I'm seeing on google maps doesn't really correspond with the pic so I'll just say that it reminds me of a location that is a few hundred metres sort of the terminus on the Strzelecki line.
