Ropes Creek Line


Track: unknown
Stations: 1 / 4 in use

The Ropes Creek line is a short disused line in Sydney's west. It was built during the war to serve the Department of Defence area to the north of St Marys station. It had 3 stations on it: Dunheved, Cochrane and Ropes Creek. The latter two are in restricted property, so the opportunities to visit are limited.

Currently, the first kilometre is used as a storage siding. It is truncated at Forresters Road. <a href=""></a>
