Right on all counts - I am Alvie
, the nearby geological formation is Red Rock (worth a visit) and the crop was onions - no longer grown on the scale it once was, owing, I believe, to white rot to a large extent.
The Alvie line, which was a very basic operation, was, probably for that reason, making a profit in the depression years then the Beechy and the lines to Forrest and Cressy were losing money.
The station site is now a farm, or farmlet, which several years ago the owner named "Rails End".
Your turn, deadlaker.
