Hi Ron,
This may help http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dugandan_railway_line
It might be a bit short on what you looking for, I think you are near the mark,Let face it unless someone remembers its exact location when i gets uploaded no one is going to give a dam
as long as it's there
Looking at it in Google Earth i would put it where you have the the top arrow in your screenshot

Cheers,
Patchy

hi patchy
i already had that link
no help there mate
i tried nearmap, i'm a member of that,
but the map shows orange and brown,
cant make out details even way down.
bing maps is just as bad

in google maps i went down as far as i could and have decided to put it where the closer arrow is to the crossroads
cheers

hi patchy
i will put it besides the road that runs past the station masters house.
there is evidence of the road going past there.
now i know why
i went into walkabout mode on google earth and the old driven down track shows up rather well

cheers
