  7334 Chief Commissioner

It's not Kandos.

I thought you might pick it as there are some similarities to your last post.

It is also my first effort on Flickr so please excuse the "my beautiful photo" comments as I do not seem to be able to get back in to edit them out.

Ben Bullen?

Neither Kandos or Ben Bullen nor anywhere on that line.

This location still sees trains.

I wish the photos were a better quality as they make it very hard but they cannot be retaken.

This location has something in common with the previous contribution from jibbonpoint.

I'm guessing that the thing in common with the previous contribution is that they are both now only served by freight trains.

I'll have a crack at Denman.

Neither Kandos, Ben Bullen, or anywhere on that line, nor Denman.

Freight trains only is a common feature but not the one I had in mind.

Neither Kandos, Ben Bullen, or anywhere on that line, nor Denman or Robertson.  None is close.

Sorry folks, I have goofed here badly and for that I apologise humbly.

Freight trains only is NOT a common feature.  This location still sees passenger trains daily but they have not stopped here in a long time, they usually go past at a great rate of knots and if they do not it has nothing to do with passengers.

The common feature with Lockhart is something of a much more (normally) sedentary nature, but this is an exception.  

When someone gets it you will understand why I think the combination of two consecutive posts, (jibbonpoint's and mine) with this common feature, is unique.  I am not aware of any other two rail locations at which you could take photos which would include the same item as these two.

Again my apologies for my error.  Put it down to a senior moment, I seem to have a few of those these days!

Yerong Creek?
  7334 Chief Commissioner

Location: In the workshop wondering why I started 7334 in the first place
Neither Kandos, Ben Bullen, or anywhere on that line, nor Denman or Robertson.

It is not Yerong Creek but it is the closest yet.

Like Yerong Creek there is not much left of the actual station at the location other than a heap of earth where the building once stood.

Also like Yerong Creek the location still sees passenger trains daily but they have not stopped there in a long time, they usually go past at a great rate of knots and if they do not it has nothing to do with passengers.

Harefield?

Neither Kandos, Ben Bullen, or anywhere on that line, nor Denman, Robertson, Yerong Creek, nor Harefield

Yerong Creek was the closest yet.

Like Yerong Creek there is not much left of the actual station at the location other than a heap of earth where the building once stood.

Harefield still retains its building but it is looking a bit sad and it is of a different style.  AFAIK the original building at Harefield was similar to the others at smaller locations south of Junee but burnt down around 1960 and was replaced by the current structure

Like Yerong Creek and Harefield the location still sees passenger trains daily but they have not stopped there in a long time, they usually go past at a great rate of knots and if they do not it has nothing to do with passengers.

This location has something in common with the previous contribution from jibbonpoint which was Lockhart but it is not geographic.

Gerogery perhaps? Though I cant figure the similarity with Lockhart.

mikesyd has it with Gerogery.

The similarity is that the building at Gerogery was relocated to Lockhart some years ago.

The unique aspect of the two consecutive posts is that the two contain images of the same building at two different locations.  I am not aware of anywhere else where this occurred.  I am aware that the station at Whitton was relocated but elsewhere in the town not to another rail location.

I do however suspect that the relocation and reconstruction might have involved some serious modifications as the photos of the building at Lockhart suggest some differences from my recollections of the structure at Gerogery.  Comparison of the photos of the two on nswrail tend to confirm this.
