Cobar Branch


Track: 175.07 km
Stations: 0 / 3 in use

The Cobar branch extends from Nyngan in the far west, west across the plains to the town of Cobar. Beyond Cobar the line is privately owned, and continues to the CSA and Elura mines. From 1901 to 1965 there was also a branch from the south of the town to the Occidental mine.

Traffic today consists of ore from the mines, and wheat from silos along the line.
