Westby Branch


Track: unknown
Stations: 0 / 5 in use

This line extended from the Main South at The Rock to the locality of Westby. Opened in 1926, it lasted only 31 years before being closed. In 1952 the line was truncated to Mangoplah, due to bushfire damage. Only 4 years later the entire line was formally closed by an Act of Parliament.

The line has been lifted, but the remains of the line can be traced through the rolling hills and fields, all the way to the terminus at Westby. Given that the line closed almost 50 years ago, the stations are still in very good condition.
