Local knowledge of the Collie to Cardiff and mines required please

 
  ShaneB Locomotive Driver

Hi,
 I am interested in some local information on the old Collie to Mine #2 line and the current status of the line from local knowledge please. The reason is that I will look at updating the abandoned lines on OpenStreetMap.com around this area.

Can you have a look at this map and let me know what appears to be incorrect. Please ignore the grey railway lines  as these are not confirmed. Also
1. There is a branch between Cardiff and Mine #2 to the east. Where did this go and did it branch again? Did this line ever connect to the line from Bowelling other than via Collie?
2. Did the straight line se of Cardiff station just finish at a siding
3. The Karak rail - trail from Collie to Allansford. Did the railway ever go south of the Coalfields Highway along this route or just north as is at the moment.

Any assistance greatly appreciated

Can help with the first question.  There was a branch to a loadout for coal at Delta off this line.
