Railway Map

June 5 2017

We have found a 1973 Victorian Railways map showing various stations in the network at a time it was considered at its peak.

The marked distance between Deniliquin station and Spencer Street (now known as Southern Cross) is 306 kilometres.

Between Deniliquin and Echuca were the stations of Mathoura, Moira and Moama.

The line between Echuca and Deniliquin was split off between Moama and Moira and created a line that went all the way up to Balranald with stops in places like Caldwell and Wakool.

There is also a line to a place called Warragoon but it is not the Warragoon near Deniliquin, this Warragoon is 83km east of that place.

Deniliquin lost its rail service in January 1979 whilst Balranald lost their service in 1975 and many services in country Victoria were shut down by the mid 1990’s with some services brought back in recent times.

EDIT: Information on Warragoon line added, scanned map expanded to include Warragoon.
