Between Callanna and Wangianna?
  Rodo Chief Commissioner

Location: Southern Riverina
It is north of Bopeechee but a long way south of Davenport which is in the middle of the NT. - dunno if it has a siding?

Callanna and Wangianna are on the Eyre peninsula - I think? Not the right district.

Finke River bridge?
  Rodo Chief Commissioner

Location: Southern Riverina
A fair way south of Finke which once had a more impressive bridge than this one, I think. This is over a smaller stream.

Green Signal, you may proceed, duttonbay!

OK, where's this? Although the level crossing and (some) tracks survive, the signal box and interlocked gates, not to mention all the signals visible, are long gone...

North Bendigo.

Not North Bendigo either. This was a major (well, largish) station.

Maryborough?
  duttonbay Minister for Railways

Maryborough it is. The signal box is A box. It was a "grab" shot taken when I was maybe 11 years old, through the window of the family car.  You can see the smoke of a loco on the left hand side, the loco itself is almost obscured by the diagonal strut on the gate. That loco was actually the subject of the photo!  I think I've learned a bit since then...
