Darnum was served by a duplicated railway by 1960.

Its village is a bit larger too. Fair guesses but in the wrong part of the state.

WSITD - Locksley?

A partially informed calculation, I would say, Rick.

The village of Locksley nowadays consists of one house. There once was a little more but nothing to compare with the village in question which seems to show a very slight growth in modern times.

Gomer has cracked it with Longwood, the only place so far that truly fits the description.

Thanks Rodo,
I am a closed staion (1977)at a location on a closed line.
I had a platform and a siding with a platform for unloading super.
The mounds are still there with a rail trail running through it.
Cheers

That description fits hundreds of places, except that a rail trail narrows it down a bit.

I will start with Tarrawingee.

A large brick station with 2 platforms, one of which is hardly used. It once had 2 dock platforms facing up and down. A once busy freight centre is unused with disconnected remnants of sidings.

Bendigo?

Rick
  Rodo Chief Commissioner

Location: Southern Riverina
This station is made of old red bricks and its second platform is less used than Bendigo's. The second platform is about 90 years younger than the station.

Bendigo also has numerous sidings that are reasonably used.

This station's main platform line has had a gauge change in recent years.

Serviceton?

Location: Southern Riverina
Serviceton has only one platform, I believe. This station's main platform gauge change is more recent.

Hundreds of them Rick. How about a few details of remains buildings, tracks etc.  ????

I will go to the next station where nothing remains.  -- Ravenswood
