I am not aware that you have used the photo before, it just looked vaguely familiar.

I was initially thinking Pucawan or Quandary but they were not right so I did a little research.

Where is this.  

If it is a bit obscure I will post a photo looking in the other direction but I do not know how much help that will be as the grass is a bit long!

Neither Luadra, Mangoplah nor where the Colingullie - The Rock road crosses the Kywong line heading North from the Rock.

I have added the photo looking in the opposite direction.

There are no rails under that grass but there were once.

On the Bright line somewhere towards the Bowser end?

Near Booyong on the Ballina branch?

It is in NSW

It is not on the Ballina line

Neither Luadra, Mangoplah nor where the Colingullie - The Rock road crosses the Kywong line heading North from the Rock but to get to any of those places you would probably have travelled close to this location.

Maybe out Westby way.

Neither Luadra, Mangoplah, where the Colingullie - The Rock road crosses the Kywong line heading North from the Rock, nor out Westby way.

To get to any of the places listed in the last paragraph from Sydney by rail you would have travelled over or close to this location but it is a fair way from any of them.  

It is within two kilometres of an active and very well used railway line and the photo was taken from a well used public road.

The Original (pre 1915) Main South between Gunning and Fish River - where it crossed the Grabben Gullen Road.

That's the one.

Taken last weekend.  The grass is a bit long to really show the formation very well.

It did look familiar, though there was a lot less grass when I last saw it many years ago.

Most of the original line between Cullerin and Gunning was deviated when the line was duplicated around 1915, and most of that original formation is still visible from the old Hume Highway. Between Gunning and Fish River, where the photo was taken, the deviation looped to the north and almost doubled the distance between the two.

Anyway, where is this :

Yes indeed, the former bridge just north of the original waterfront Portland Station.

There is an historical plaque on the edge of the road above, and on the other side the 251 Milepost sits in a corner of what is now a front yard, and the cutting an the northern side is still mostly in place to just beyond the fenceline.

Hi everyone,

A quick side note. I was a regular on this page but dropped off for various reasons, but now I'm living in NSW so hopefully I'll be able to identify more of the photos on here!

Do you have to use this bookmarklet thingy to post photos, or can you just use the link?

Cheers
