I managed to scan the Ballina rail route maps at Murwillumbah Library recently. The Ballina end is from a map and most of the other end from a map.

Most of the passenger platforms were raised to standard heights between and The Casino to Murwillumbah railway had ruling gradients of 1 in 50 and in some instances curves down to 12 chains metres radius which limited speeds on the line. Bridges Due to the numerous waterways on the line, there are many bridges on the line. A further branch line was also approved for construction to Bonalbo. It was however at times a difficult port and subject to difficult weather conditions, which was demonstrated in when the Wollongbar was driven ashore on the beach and wrecked. Lismore was surveyed and proclaimed as a village in In the early days transport in the area was extremely difficult with shipping providing the best alternative as roads were often rudimentary or non-existent. These were located at Lismore and Byron Bay. Larger vessels were able to make port in Byron Bay and appropriate facilities were provided at Byron Bay. Index Types of Traffic Carried Timber Because of the substantial timber, especially red cedar, timber was a major traffic generator in the early days. It was envisaged that the Lismore to Murwillumbah line would eventually form part of a mainline connection between Sydney and Brisbane, so it was constructed to mainline standards, with ballasted track, substantial earthworks, bridges and tunnels, however all the stations initially only had 'rail-level platforms'. The line was opened on the 20 September, , and due to lack of traffic and patronage it was closed in when landslides blocked the line following torrential rain. Butter and Milk Products - This area was a rich farming area and a big producer of diary products. Crops Once timber had been cleared from the land, maize and other crops were able to be planted and grown. Once timber had been cleared from the land, maize and other crops were able to be planted and grown. As suggested, the railway crossed many rivers and waterways in its journey between Casino and Murwillumbah, so it was necessary to overcome a number of geographical obstacles. Lismore Railway Wharf - was originally constructed by the railway contractor building the line and was used to tranship railway materials and also railway rolling stock for use on the line. In the mid s the plantations were ravaged by the 'bunchy top' disease introduced from Fiji. It was hoped that the branch would generate traffic for transhipment through the port at Ballina, but the line actually stopped about a mile short of the wharfs, so little goods traffic was shipped through Ballina. A number of sugar mills were established over time. Tunnels There were nine 9 tunnels on the line to assist the passage of the railway through the ranges separating the various river valleys. A number of butter factories were established to process the products which were then shipped to Sydney and other southern towns. Pigs - An abattoir was established at Byron Bay to process bacon and this generated significant livestock traffic on the railways, which was then transhipped through the Byron Bay wharf to overseas markets. This area is known as the Northern Rivers of New South Wales and was so named because of the many rivers that flow to the sea in this area.

Stations and Sidings Initially there were 11 stations opened on the Lismore to Murwillumbah section, but over the years a number of stations and sidings have been added. It was an important focus for passengers and goods services. Screenshots Screenshots. The sections of line covered by the Tweed Railway were opened as follows: Lismore to Mullumbimby - 15 May Mullumbimby to Murwillumbah including Condong Sugar Mill - 24 December In it was finally decided to build the section of line from Lismore to Casino, which was opened on 9 October, The section between Casino and Grafton was approved in and opened on 6 November, The branch to Kyogle was approved in and opened on 25 June Casino at the junction of these lines became a major railway town hub for many years. There were nine 9 tunnels on the line to assist the passage of the railway through the ranges separating the various river valleys. These bridges range from steel Pratt Truss bridges across major rivers, such as at Leycester Creek, Wilsons River, down to simple wooden bridges in many locations. It had been envisaged that this branch might form part of a link to connect the coastal railway to the inland railway. Because of the substantial timber, especially red cedar, timber was a major traffic generator in the early days. Ships of up to tons and feet were able to cross the bar of the Richmond River at Ballina and steam upstream to Lismore to transport freight. CSR established a major mill at Condong, a couple of miles downstream of Murwillumbah in A railway connection was established to the mill with the opening of the branch. It received heavy usage up until and then spasmodic usage up until about when it appears to have had very little usage. Initially there were 11 stations opened on the Lismore to Murwillumbah section, but over the years a number of stations and sidings have been added. Colonial Sugar Refining Co. In NSW parliament authorised the building of an isolated section of Railway line between Lismore and Murwillumbah. These steam ships commenced operating from onwards. Sugar - Sugar cane was introduced on the Richmond River from and became a major crop in the northern Rivers. The Richmond River was navigatable as far inland as Lismore, which was approximately 15 miles form the sea. Plans for Railways were discussed as early as the s, but initially focussed on connecting from the Great Northern Railway that was advancing towards Tenterfield, on the other side of the Great Dividing Range. The territory between the Richmond and Tweed Rivers was also known as the "Big Scrub", because of the dense growth of bushes, scrub and vines often growing to heights from 50 to 60 feet. The longest tunnel was in the Burringbar Range and was metres in length. There were two principal wharves on the branch. During extended periods of wet weather roads became impassable. This section of railway line would facilitate the movement of traffic to the coast for on shipment by ship. Over the years some of the wooden bridges have been replaced, but those that were left started to create maintenance nightmares and contributed to the closure of the line due to the project cost of rehabilitation. The industry was rebuilt by the introduction of strict control measures from the s and again became a major traffic source for the NSWGRs. Index Ballina Branch Over the years there was much agitation by locals to connect Ballina to the Tweed Railway, but nothing came of it until the early s when an act was approved to build a branch off the Tweed Railway at Booyong to Ballina. Index Key Features of the Railway As suggested, the railway crossed many rivers and waterways in its journey between Casino and Murwillumbah, so it was necessary to overcome a number of geographical obstacles. Construction actually started but was halted during the Great Depression and was never completed. Quite a few stations were moved, sometimes up to a quarter of a mile from their original location. In order to reach the sun, the red cedars, much prized for their red timber, often reached heights of feet. The first settlers that came to the Northern Rivers region were the timber cutters, attracted by the stands of red cedar in the area. The line was built to 'pioneer line' standards, though it was fenced for part of its distance and had a number of substantial bridges on the route, including an opening bridge across North Canal, just before the Ballina station.

Track Formation It was envisaged that the Lismore to Murwillumbah line would eventually form part of a mainline connection between Sydney and Brisbane, so it was constructed to mainline standards, with ballasted track, substantial earthworks, bridges and tunnels, however all the stations initially only had 'rail-level platforms'. The first timber cutters into the Richmond River valley were in Lismore grew out of the need to service these timber cutters. Wharves As indicated one of the principal reasons for building the line was to bring traffic to ports and tranship goods to ships for transport to Sydney. As indicated one of the principal reasons for building the line was to bring traffic to ports and tranship goods to ships for transport to Sydney. The original wharf was built in , but was replaced in by a new wharf of approximately feet long. It was extended on a number of occasions throughout its life and reached a length of feet long. Subsequent explorations up the Richmond River noted the fine stands of timber, particularly red cedar, which grew on its banks. By doing this it was hoped to stop trade in the Northern Rivers going north towards Queensland. Dairy Products and Livestock Butter and Milk Products - This area was a rich farming area and a big producer of diary products. By they were being exported to the Sydney Markets, travelling by a special short train to Byron Bay where they were transhipped to ship for onward passage to Sydney. A petrol mechanical locomotive was used to shunt the line. This was a major source of revenue for the railways and special trains were run out to Crabbes Creek to collect sugar cane for processing. In it was finally decided to build the section of line from Lismore to Casino, which was opened on 9 October, These last two sections later became part of the main North Coast link between Sydney and Brisbane, which was completed with the building of the railway bridge across the Clarence River at Grafton in , to complete the missing link and end the status of being and 'isolated railway'. Bananas - were grown in the Tweed River valley around Murwillumbah.
