  • Timber Top loop and siding

  • Moleton elevated water tank

Some sections have much higher maintenance costs than others. The section from Tallawudjah Creek to Mole Creek Bridge No 1 has the highest costs with the section of track from Glenreagh Station to Glenreagh West Depot, as well as Mole Creek Bridge No. 3 to Ulong, the lowest. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The above photo is of the Dorrigo branch line at Glenreagh station yard looking south as it heads towards Glenreagh West via the Orara River bridge. The Dorrigo line can just be seen in the grass. It runs parallel to the main line for several hundred metres then heads to the right past the trees.
