Violet Town is obviously outside the guidelines.

Trying Monea instead.

Not Bowmans Forest, Bagshot, Bungaree, Garvoc, Panmure, Violet Town or Monea.


This location has had three different names.
It started life as a siding only.
A station was built there - it has gone, but trains still thunder through.
The siding served sawmills.
The location was a staff station on a main line.
A second track was opened in 1962.

One of the above is extremely close.

I'm guessing it's Locksley, then. No idea if it was a staff station, but presumably would have served part of the same area as Monea.

It is indeed Locksley, having previously been Burnt Creek Wood Siding and then Burnt Creek.

Now it's over to TheMeddlingMonk.

Thanks, Valvegear.

A painting of this location is displayed in a nearby museum.

Hmmm, there is a ridiculous amount of paintings of rail locations in museums. Every little place seems to have some kind of a museum these days too.

I will keep it central and name Melbourne.

Hi Rodo,

It's not Melbourne.

A painting of this location is displayed in a nearby museum.

The artist was a local and painted other non-rail related locations nearby as well.

Alright, I will try Echuca Wharf then.
  TheMeddlingMonk Deputy Commissioner

Location: The Time Vortex near Melbourne, Australia
Nope, not Melbourne or Echuca Wharf.

A painting of this location is displayed in a nearby museum.
The artist was a local and painted other non-rail related locations nearby as well.

The painting features H220 in operation.

Only part of the station building depicted exists now.

Rodo, you're right, it's Benalla.

Over to you.

For reference, here's the Benalla Museum's website with a photo of the painting:

I a pleased to get a chance to suggest another rail location.

This place is now just a name board alongside a section of straight track. No platform or siding remains, although it was once a reasonably equipped station.

Last time I passed through getting a cab ride it was just a crossing loop and the hand operated points were set for the loop, even though we did not cross another train. I thought this unusual.

The crossing loop was removed not all that long after the passenger train I rode on ceased running. I went to just the lonely nameboard, not very long after I inspected the remains of Emu . (a week or so)

I'm going to guess Nowingi?

Getting reasonably warm but I cant recall what is at that one.

Speed ?
  Rodo Chief Commissioner

Location: Southern Riverina
I think that both Nowingi and Speed have a few more remains.  I believe neither of them has a nameboard and this place has.

Thanks Rodo. Drove past it many times on the way to Mildura.

I'll put something up in next couple of days.

Ok, I'm a closed station that was associated with a hard rock quarry.

OK - I'll try Bung Bong. (Not even sure if it had a station, but an old mate who was a driver loved the name of the train known as the Bung Bong Ballast ).
