End of the Line - the Great Northern Railway

In an earlier post I looked in a preliminary way at the history of New England's railways.

This photo looks south across the border from Queensland and shows the end of what was once the Great Northern Railway.

Just to the right of the photo, the Queensland railway lines still cut through the road.

Unlike the New South Government which simply abandoned the lines, Queensland has kept its tracks open.
