Struggling with this, but are those steel sleepers in the foreground?

So, it's not Herberton, Glenmorgan or Goondiwindi.

I'm pretty certain those are steel sleepers on at least the road closest to the camera.

Perhaps another clue:

The line in question closed in 1976. A newer line, still operational, is about 900m to the east.

Pine Creek?
Lad_Porter
Yep, sure is. Staff to @Lad_Porter.

I was in Pine Creek a couple of years ago, and thought it looked familiar.  I was interested to see how well preserved the old station yard is.

Anyway, here's something different.  It's a disused siding at a disused factory, although the factory is still used as a working museum.  The siding was connected to a main line which is also defunct.

Is it the Wool Scour at Blackall?

From the filename of the pic it would seem so! Wink

Wool scour at/near Blackall is correct.  Need to change file name in future !!!

Anyway, green light to 5915.
  5915 Chief Commissioner

Thanks Lad_Porter.  I had travelled to the wool scour a few years back and did recognize the location.

Alas, no photo to post at the moment so open floor.
