The Coonamble railway line is a railway line in New South Wales, Australia. The line branches from the Main West Line at Dubbo It opened in 1903, and carried passenger traffic until the 1970s. 900/950 class railmotors were first introduced on the service between Dubbo and Coonamble. It continues to carry goods traffic, predominately grain. The disused historic Coonamble railway station is currently at risk of demolition due to vandalism and high maintenance costs. The line is owned by the Rail Infrastructure Corporation of New South Wales, however operations over the line are managed by the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) under a 60 year agreement.
Condition of track
To properly handle heavy wheat traffic, the track needs to be upgraded from Class 5 (30 kg/m rail) to Class 3 (40 kg/m rail).
