A few weeks ago there was a thread about an upcoming anniversary (100 yrs ?) of a specific point of the railway and reference to the run-down state of the monument celebrating the place in question.

Can somebody please remind me of the place in question?

And at another 10km to the west is the sign at the eastern end of the longest straight in the world. 478 km or 297miles.
