Brawlin.

Not Brawlin. There's not much information on this location. The Farmer that lives there told me that there was a siding.

The road into it was named after it. (Or probably before it was established).

Wambidgee?

Not Wambidgee. I noticed earlier that this location isn't on the Oct 2016 edition of Hairyleg's overlay. It may be because it was added to the line much later than the other locations. Except for the name of the road, the overlay won't be of much use.

Luadra then?

Luadra it is. 7334 gets it. Railnet states that Luadra came into being in 1954. Well after the other locations. Take it away 7334.

There must be a story attached to the location being established so late in the day but you would wonder.

Lost in the mists of time as they say.

Where was this?

I walked across it 20 or so years ago but there were already holes in the ballast where the timber support had rotted away.  I imagine I would be pretty hesitant about doing it today.

5915 has it with the Severn River bridge near Dundee

Has anyone been there "recently" to know what condition it is in?
  5915 Chief Commissioner

Thanks 7344. I have not seen this bridge since crossing it by train in 1977 but if it is anything like Sunnyside it is bound to have deteriorated.

Open floor.

WSITD - Corobimilla?
  jibbonpoint Chief Commissioner

Location: Shoalhaven
Not Corobimilla. But correct gauge.

Looks like somewhere I have been.  Trouble is that does not narrow it down too much.

Coorabin?

Not quite a WSITD, more a SITD.
  jibbonpoint Chief Commissioner

Location: Shoalhaven
Not Corobimlila nor Coorabin. Not those lines either.  It's standard gauge & NSW.
