No it's not Nyngan either.

Thanks for putting the pictures up.

As established, it also isn't the following;

Batlow
Dubbo
Dorrigo
Crookwell
Canberra
Cowra
Hill Top (or anywhere else on that branch line)
Mungindi
Bogabilla
Cronulla
Barraba

Cronulla?

I'm trying to work out, is it single line beyond the  three tracks we can see? It looks like it but its hard to tell with this photo

You were right about this one, I bet its one of those photos where we are all going to slap our heads and say of course when its revealed
"nadnerb_2000"



This is correct, it is only a single line.

Musswellbrook? Coffs Harbour?

Sorry about the two guesses, but gotta go to work!

Neither Muswelbrook or Coffs Harbour. I will be online for a little bit longer, and if not solved when I get back Sunday, a clue will be forthcoming.

None of the previous guesses have been correct.

I will put a post in there there.

The flood was caused by a creek, which is named after another station on the same line.

Ropes Creek?

It isn't Ropes Creek.

The line where this station is situated has never been electrified.

Boree Creek

Not Boree Creek either Chris.

The flood was caused by a creek, which is named after another station on the same line, but "Creek" does not form part of the location name, and neither that of the station that the creek that caused the flood is named also.

Boy that sounds confusing.

There is a coal stage in one of the photos. The photos showing the water tanks tipped over is part of the barracks that the gangers and sometimes drivers stayed at.

I'll be back early tonight.

Byrock?

BTW, I didn't think the "creek" was necessarily part of the name, but if I could figure out which creek it was, we'd be a lot closer to getting the location.  S'all good though right?

I dont know creeks very well unfortunately, I'm basing my guesses on the track layout and the station building and what looks like a goods platform etc.

I havent actually been there, but Bomaderry/Nowra?

Incidentally, this flood was caused by a creek that has a station named after it, but the location shown isnt necessarily that station, is it, it could be further up the same line?

"nadnerb_2000"


The above statement is correct. Technically, the station which is named after the creek, is down from the location.

All other guesses so far, have been incorrect.

Clue:

If the main western line was used to divide NSW in two, this location would be on the northen side.
