Gunning is a town located on the Main South Line on the Cootamundra side of the Cullerin Range. It is easily accessible to and from the Hume Highway, and is a good place to start a chase northbound towards Goulburn and Moss Vale, with northbound trains facing a long climb over the ranges. It is good for northbound trains in the morning, and southbound trains in the afternoon. A great view can be had from the overpass north of the station as down trains descend towards the town. The station itself is in good condition with some of the old signage re-used and painted in CountryLink colours.
Located on the old hume highway in Southern New South Wales. Makes for a nice location with the Cullerin Ranges in the vicinity.
Preparation point for all PN standard gauge locos

Opened in 1964 by the Victorian Railways, as a replacement for North Melbourne loco depot. South Dynon loco depot is the servicing, maintenance and operations point for the majority of broad and standard gauge diesel locomotives in use in Victoria. EMD powered locomotives are the workshop's core business for maintenance, although ALCo products are occasionally maintained in the site's facilities. Due to privatisation of the rail freight and passenger services in the late 1990's, the site passed into the control of private rail operators and/or maintenance companies. Currently, the main shed at Dynon is occupied by EDi on the southern side, and Bombardier on the northern side. The former Dynon Car Shed is now occupied by Gemco (formerly Rail Technical Support, or RTS), who also perform diesel maintenance for varying customers. Note: New generation United Group built locomotives (NR's, 93's etc.) are serviced at a motive power provisioning facilty near Dock Link Road, and maintained at a specially-built facility in Spotswood, Victoria.

Kensington station opened on 1 November 1860 as part of the private Melbourne and Essendon Railway Company line to Essendon. The station closed with the line in 1864, but was reopened in 1871 under government ownership. The Melbourne-bound station building was constructed in 1886, as was the signal box beside the Kensington Road level crossing. The gates at the crossing were replaced by boom barriers in 1966.
Good views from the footbridge of trains in both directions.
