Cascade?
  HMC1989 Chief Commissioner

Not Cascade, but both the last two guesses are on the right track so to speak.

Brooklana?

Right area wurx but no cigar.
  5915 Chief Commissioner


Megan?

5915

  HMC1989 Chief Commissioner

Location: Behind a desk.
Not Megan but on the right line. Hint: this former bridge can be viewed from a road just outside one of the bigger towns on this line.

Dorrigo?

Ulong?

Location: Behind a desk.
Not Ulong.
  5915 Chief Commissioner


Glenreagh?

5915

  7334 Chief Commissioner

Location: In the workshop wondering why I started 7334 in the first place

So it’s not Lowanna, Cascade, Brooklana, Megan, Dorrigo, or Ulong and the jury is still out on Glenreagh.



Moleton?

  tezza Chief Commissioner

 Near the Orara River bridge at Glenreagh

Bingo Glenreagh it is. Taken from Sherwood Creek road. 5915 has the floor.
  tezza Chief Commissioner

    Thats the one,  it was deliberately burnt out a few years ago  by a property owner to obtain higher access for earthmoving machinery on the other side .

    The bridge / timber opening wasnt installed untill after the 1955 floods at Glenreagh

    There are not many locations where you can view the line from a road , another giveaway is the lantana, which doesnt grow higher up the line than Moleton

New pic time...

Try to be precise with your locational guesses, and if you can, tell me if it was a govt. or private railway.

That looks to me like the old line into Sydney goods yard/darling harbour where it crosses Ultimo Rd looking north

Pumping station at West Ryde - so technically private railway?

"HairyLeg"

It does look quite similar to that, but not where this is.

The line into Homebush sale yards across Parramatta Rd

Not Rydalmere nor the Parramatta road bridge to what was Homebush Saleyards.

Thanks to Jim K, we're part of the way there in that it was a private line.
