Barraba Branch


Track: 98.82 km
Stations: 1 / 14 in use

The Barraba branch lies in the north of the state. It originally extended north from Tamworth along the broad Manilla valley to the town of Barraba. There are no steep gradients, although the line features an impressive viaduct over the Namoi River in Manilla and a wooden bridge over Tarpoly Creek which is nearly 100 years old.

These days it is no longer in use, except for a 6km section extending to the locality of Westdale. Many of the locations on the line have disappeared completely although the remains of some platforms still remain.
