L-1172 has it. This is the cutting where the line to Heyfield and Maffra diverged from the line to Sale. The cutting is filled in about 100 metres from here.
Here is an uncropped version of the picture:

Take a stab at Avoca Vic.?

By the way, the picture flashes on then, disappears quickly for me, anyway.

Don't know why it is disappearing.

It is not Avoca. It is broad gauge but it is not in Victoria.

Never heard of Tantonan and I had to look up where it is.

Location is broad gauge and is not in Victoria or New South Wales.

Not Coonawarra, however Alawoona is heading in the right direction. Keep going north/north east.

Some pictures seem to do this if you are not logged in to Flickr, must be some setting in Flickr.

5915 you are correct with your guess although I recorded the location as East Berri, just past the "Big Orange".

The track and ballast still appear to be in good shape in my picture.

Photo was taken on the 19th of November, 1986.

Staff to 5915.

Seems like the diversion of the A20 (Sturt Highway) some years back cost the Big O much of its customers, for it has since closed - though it still stands.

Thanks L-1172.  Google Earth makes some of these a lot easier than otherwise.

Sorry, I missed Graham 4405's guess which is correct - Sunnyside, about 6 km south of Wallangarra.

Hmm, I compared your photo with those I took around 2 years later and didn't really think it was!
Anyway, I still have nothing, so open floor.
