GMR History

In 1993 the Glenreagh to Dorrigo Railway (Closure) Act 1993 was passed clearing the way for the sale or lease of the Branch Line. The line was officially closed by notification in theNSW Government Gazette of 17 December, 1993.

Two groups tendered for the line, the Glenreagh Mountain Railway Inc. and the Dorrigo Steam Railway and Museum Inc. GMR now controls the line from Glenreagh to a point about halfway between Lowanna and Ulong, while the Dorrigo Steam and Railway Inc. controls the remainder of the line to the Dorrigo terminus.

The main stops along the Branch Line and their facilities at the time of opening were, from Glenreagh to Dorrigo:

Glenreagh

Glenreagh Station was the junction of the Glenreagh to Dorrigo Line with the North Coast Line. The Station opened in October 1915 as part of the North Coast Line. Glenreagh Station consisted of an island platform, one main crossing loop, a transit siding and goods sidings. In the days of steam, it had a steam depot, water tank, turntable and carriage shed facilities at the Grafton end of the yard. Line left Glenreagh Station from the southern end of the yard; trains to the south were required to reverse.
