Blayney - Demondrille Line


Track: 101.23 km
Stations: 1 / 27 in use

This line extend from Blayney on the Main Western Line south-west to Demondrille on the Main South Line. It was constructed quite early in the state's history, to serve the fertile area between Blayney and Young, and also to provide a cross-country route which would allow trains to bypass the Blue Mountains to the west of Sydney.

The line was constructed north from Demondrille and then south from Blayney, with the final section being the railway bridge over the Lachlan River, just to the south of Cowra.

In the 80s services were suspended between Cowra and Blayney, however the section was re-opened by the Lachlan Valley Railway. The LVR run tourist trains, mainly from Cowra to Blayney and Canowindra, and have now moved into general freight haulage.

This section was again closed in the 1990's when a bridge near Holmwood burnt down. In December 1999 the bridge was repaired and the line re-opened officially by the SRA in April 2000.

South of Cowra, the line is mainly utilised by the LVR which operates to Demondrille and further hauling grain and running tours. FreightCorp also run grain trains from Cowra silo and as far as Greenethorpe, on the truncated Grenfell Branch.
