Welcome to the Stations of the North Coast Line!

The North Coast Line is the major trunk line from NSW to Brisbane, in Queensland. originally the only rail link to Queensland was via the Main North Line, which involved a change-of-gauge at Wallangarra, on the border. However in 1930 a standard gauge line was completed through the MacPherson Ranges and on into Queensland.

The line starts at Telarah and visits the major towns of Taree, Kempsey, Coffs Harbour, Grafton and Casino. Just before it crosses the border is the Cougal Spiral, one of only 2 in NSW (the other being Bethungra spiral on the Main South).

Today the line sees much traffic in the form of passenger and freight trains. The line has been heavily rationalised with most of the smaller stations removed. Even at locations where passenger trains still stop, many of the stations have been replaced by 3m elevated platforms necessitating multiple stops to allow passengers to get on and off.

The group also encompasses the various branch lines and timber tramways associated with the line.

We also cover the Main North line and branches from Werris Creek to Wallangarra.
