Time to give the answer, which is Wurarga, between Yalgoo and Mullewa.

The railway was extended from Mullewa to Yalgoo in 1896, with a staging post for the stations and mines at Wurarga. The Wurarga Hotel, located on the railway route west of the town, was licenced as a way-side inn in 1896 to William Mooney. It also functioned as a store. Nearby there were also three railway ganger houses of limestone and corrugated iron construction, which have since been demolished. Only piles of stone remain. A goods shed was located on the north side of the railway platform. To the south-west of the hotel was a cricket oval and to the south-east are the remains of the stock yards and loading ramps. In more recent years the Mullewa - Yalgoo Road was redirected approximately 2km north of the Hotel. The Wurarga Hotel was delicenced in 1969.

It looks like the rail siding below Lake Anneen. Nannine town-site rail siding south of Meekatharra.

Love the railway theme. Thought I might stick with it.

This one shouldn't be too hard. Need the exact location and line though

reminds me of that ancient hit tune "The railway runs through the middle of our house".. Is it somewhere in SA, West from the Flinders Ranges?

Mick, it looks like the Peake Creek station on the old Ghan line but in better condition than I remember.

half right people. Definitely SA and yes it is along the Ghan.

No it's not Peake Allan.

Yeah, I was going to say Mt Dutton also but I don't think there are two buildings there.
Could be wrong.

Mike and Paul, not Mt Dutton. Two buildings at this one because it serviced something significant back in the day.

A clue or two - further south than Peake and Mt Dutton. This bloke might know about it.

Good deduction work there Mike. Spot on. It is the Anna Creek Railway Siding. One of the buildings has been cleared out by the Pajero Club of SA so you can actually camp within the walls of the building (no roof of course).

Anna Creek itself was discovered by Col Warburton in 1858 and named by him after a daughter of John Chambers.

Anna Creek Station was originally located at Strangways Springs when first purchased by Julius Jeffreys, John Warren and William Bakewell in January 1863. The partnership mainly ran sheep and in “The Great Drought Years” between 1864 and 1866 was stocked with 7,300 sheep. Sheep were constantly subjected to attacks by dingoes so cattle became the main focus of the station.

Anna Creek became part of the Kidman Empire in 1935 and it remained so until 2016 when it was bought by the Williams Cattle Company. It remains the largest operating cattle station in the world at over 15000km2.

The Anna Creek siding was crucial to the station carting our wool and cattle across it's life.

Exploroz Place - Anna Creek Siding - SA

Cheers

Mick
