December 2015 - Byron Beach Station is now located on right hand side of photo. Looking DOWN the line towards Murwillumbah. Lawson/Shirley St level crossing is behind me .
Shirley St was originally straight and went all the way to Fletcher St until the railway line cut it in half back in 1893 , the eastern end got renamed Lawson St

A couple of days ago I posted a pic of the tiny halt at St Helena on the Mur'bah branch. Here is another such structure, this time on the main line between Casino and Kyogle. I think this was called Fairy Hill, locals can confirm. I lived 3 years in Northern Rivers but it is over 40 years ago, the memory fades. I do recall the hill adjacent to Kyogle township is known as Fairymount. In this 1986 view, 44231 and a 45 class are working a freight from Brisbane to Sydney. (Chris Sim)
