Thanks Rodo. Tinamba was just a guess as I have never been there when the station was still in operation. I will put up a photo in the next few days.

By the way Rodo, what was the date of your photo please.

That one was taken of an excursion tour, circa 1970.

I might suggest it could be about Agnes on the Yarram branch.

It is on the Yarram branch but it is not Agnes.

I will now say it is the bridge over the Franklin River near the site of Bennison platform.

K-153 is passing over a river but it is not the Franklin River. You are getting further away,  Rodo.

I will have to go for the Albert River near Alberton, this time.
  L-1172 Assistant Commissioner

Rodo, you are correct. K-153 passes over the Albert River bridge on the return journey to Melbourne with the last train from Yarram. The date is Saturday the 24th of October,  1987.

Staff to Rodo.

Not Pimba or Carnarvon. It is the remains of a private siding on the Trans...
  Bullucked Assistant Commissioner

And Rodo, would that be Harris cars behind what I'm guessing is B 85, possibly taken during an ARE tour on 14/3/1970?  Smile
