If your an older railfan you probably twig this first up.
This station was a mainline station once with heavy through traffic.

Good one Nipper, you got it spot on.
All down trains had to stop there and set the grade valves in HP position down to Jamestown. 
The SG bypassed Belalie North.

A lovely section of line, only wished I had seen that section in operation.  What about Up trains Jim?  Were they required to stop to adjust brakes for the grade to Yongala?  The grades on both sides of Belalie seem rather steep.  Here is a picture looking down the 'Up' bank toward Yongala;

and back up the Up bank toward Belalie;

Plus some wonderful scenery which would have looked even better with a 400 and a T passing by;

Anyhow, I will dig up a 'where is it' picture to post.
