Railway Archaeology: where is it? #2

 
  Bullucked Assistant Commissioner

Thanks Rodo. Tinamba was just a guess as I have never been there when the station was still in operation. I will put up a photo in the next few days.

By the way Rodo, what was the date of your photo please.

Location: Enroute somewhere
Most certainly is Loongana. Staff to YM-Mundrabilla.

The siding here consisted (off the main / loop) a triangle with a coal road, unloading road and lime road. I worked trains in and out of here in the early 2000's until the lime kiln was relocated to Parkeston. We ran several trains out there to pick up the remaining lime in late 2000 from memory. Since then the sidings have remained out of use and the minesite dismantled and removed.

Thanks Chris.

Photos and RP are beyond my technical ability (debility) so open floor - 'first in best dressed'.

Just realised that it is nearly 20 years since I was at Loongana. The mine was still staffed by a caretaker and his wife (at least) at the time.

Interesting the odd things that one remembers - the 'unique' AQOY 2571 was at Loongana - 2571 started life as an AOOX but was cut down into a 75 foot container flat and reclassified as an AQOY.

Not Yeoval. The successful person wont need to travel as far as from Glen Innes to Cumnock but there is still a fair distance to go.

That's a cooler suggestion.
Warmer suggestions will be found approximately along the GI - Cumnock bearing, and beyond Cumnock.
