Yass Branch


Track: 4.40 km
Stations: 1 / 10 in use

The Yass line was built to link the town of Yass with the nearby Main South line. This short branch was built when it was decided that the Main South line would not run through Yass. The line is less than 5km long and was operated as a tramway. Because of this, there were a number of locations in town where passengers could be picked up or dropped off. Near the end of the line, it ran down the centre of Dutton Street, and consequently drivers had to maintain a careful watch.

The line is no longer in use, however the station in the town is now the Yass Railway Museum. They have plans to use a section of the branch line for tourism.
