Running out of options here.  I don't know whether Cerberus ever had a turntable before the triangle was built.  (That's the weak link in my guess.)  And after it was closed, the M.P.R.S. used the line for a number of years until (as I understand it) a new Commanding Officer told the Society to push off.

'Pinaroo' is close enough.

1. Pinnaroo. Closed June 1996, when line from the Victorian border closed (see below).
2. The SA line from Tailem Bend was standardised through Pinnaroo to the AWB Grainflow site, about 4km east of Pinnaroo in 1997. The SA line was closed (or handed back to the SA government) in 2015.
This article from Western Victorian Railfan Guide website details BG, SG and DG operations at the AWB centre, post 1997. It appears BG operations ceased by 2007.

3. A triangle replaced the turntable in Jun 1928. The triangle was removed in March 1969.

Thanks Dave C.

We are searching for a closed station on a line that still sees a regular passenger service. The station in question was never a junction or terminus and has been closed for over 40 years. Today there is nothing left on site to suggest there was ever a station there.
