Not Belmont, whether you mean NSW, WA, Victoria or Queensland (not certain there was a railway at Belmont QLD.)

As an aside, yes, there was the Belmont Tramway in Brisbane http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belmont_Tramway

To clarify (in case you didn't click the link supplied by Petan), said tramway was in reality a railway, but there were also trams to Belmont, although the terminus was not at the current location of Belmont, but at what is currently know as Carina.

Wallsend?
  duttonbay Minister for Railways

Not Wallsend either. This cutting has an active railway line a short distance away - less than 100m

Previous incorrect guess: Belmont

Cockle Creek.
  duttonbay Minister for Railways

Not Cockle Creek.   Not only does this cutting has an active railway line a short distance away, it has an inactive/derelict line a similar distance in the other direction.

Awaba perhaps ?

Not Awaba. Not even NSW.

Somehow it made me think of the region about the above places. Maybe Adelaide Hills, rocks look like limestone.

No guess from here in the UK. Just wondered if all the archaeologists have gone away for Xmas already.

I just have no idea, and nobody else is trying, as well as few hints.

Murray Bridge, SA?
  duttonbay Minister for Railways

Murray Bridge, SA?
"br30453"

Yes!!  This photo is of the cutting which led to the first railway crossing of the Murray (which is now the road bridge).  To the left is the line down to the wharf, which curved around and under the bridge, and to the right is the current mainline which crosses the river on the "new" bridge.

Over to br30453 for the next photo...

Doh - I did have a detailed look at Murray Bridge (East) in Google Maps, but couldn't figure it. Didn't look at the West side!!

Nose that one, I do Very Happy - I often pass it when working the Endeavour to Bomaderry & back.

UIVMM, we're looking at the buffer stops of the siding that used to serve Gerringong's Co-op building. Your pic shows some rails protruding from the grass just in front of the buffer, which I hadn't noticed before.

Here's another view, showing the other tangible remnants of the siding, dating from 16/2/08:

And for those who haven't seen it before, the nicely preserved Co-op building, which is used by various community groups today.

Thanks Graham Smile

A tired old lower quadrant - pretty much the same kind as we had up until recently on the Berry-Bomaderry section.

Where's this one?

I think it might have been Gwabegar's Down Home signal; it was the only one visible. This was in July 2012, and compared to the pix on Rolfeworld, which date from around a decade before, the whole yard area is very overgrown, which made it difficult to make out much more than bits & bobs of this & that, and precious few of those.

Only took 5 individual guesses, and 5915's is the money shot Very Happy
