Merriwa Branch


Track: 81.74 km
Stations: 1 / 7 in use

The Merriwa branch is a short (39km) branch in the central north of NSW.

The section beyond Sandy Hollow was truncated to a siding in 1988. The track beyond has been washed away in several places and would take a good deal of reconstruction if services were ever to resume. The rest of the line is now part of the cross-country line between Gulgong and Muswellbrook. It has been relaid to main-line standards and sees mainly traffic from the coal loader at Ulan.
