Time for a trip my friend...

Tolga?

Rumula branch perhaps.

It is superficially similar to some of that West Moreton country but up on a plateau.

I have a vague idea about that country because an old mate of mine has a farm about Julatten.

Thanks for the clues old chap.

Not Tolga nor Rumula branch but glad the detectives are on the Tablelands Smile Now spot the earlier clue hidden in plain sight by another poster.

Petford
Rodo

Sorry no. But how did you get to Petford if the previous attempt was Herberton and the clue from there was to keep travelling away from Cairns and avoid left turns? But you incorrectly went back towards Cairns, not away from Cairns [on the rail route] and chucked a left at Mareeba Sad    Maybe I give too many clues...

Ravenshoe.
Rodo

Yes and I wonder if that is where Bullucked was considering re "part of a now preserved railway" as there is a tourist railway there now?

Rodo, please reach out your loco's window so the station's night officer [QR term] is handing you the staff token to enter the next section and offer a quiz Smile
I was going past Ravenshoe in 1977 and by pure good fortune a train was there so I used my camera Smile
I will also change the heading on the quiz image and reuse the image as there are not too many Ravenshow train images around.

According to Hairyleg's Google Earth overlay the only left turn available was between Kaban and Tumoulin, but what was this branch?

I was there in 1982 as a youngster thus my memory is a little faded and I doubt I'd had the Instamatic at that time. I thought it to be the place but as I don't have any suitable photo's and have no ability to post photo's I think it better I don't actually guess at a location. I'd rather make obtuse guesses, if nothing else but narrowing the location.

Bullucked, if you win and can not post anything just declare open floor after you win as there are many here just waiting for a chance to post an image in your place Smile Your guess is what I meant by the clue in plain sight.

Graham, I too was a bit puzzled as Brian Webber's Far Nth QLD book P.21 does not show a line there but I though I had better offer the no left turn clue to get you past that area and onto the end of the line.

Sorry Rodo, it's still doing it.

Yes but that links to the photo "album" rather than to a specific photo and what appears to be the latest is the one of Casino used previously.

There is a spanner in the works somewhere!

I had the issue too, but if you download the photo it bypasses the Adult Content thing apparently.

I believe it's Ararat Railway Station. Open floor if correct.

That is correct Simbera, I must have a fiddle with my Flikr account sometime.

I may even put another up but I have been busy with lots of other things.
