Pinnaroo railway line, Victoria

The Pinnaroo Line (completed from Ouyen to Pinnaroo in 1915) serviced the agricultural districts of the Mallee for the freight of grain, although there were periods of passenger travel on the line in previous years (the last passenger service between Ouyen and Pinnaroo being in 1968). The railway line was the means to open up the agricultural lands with the supply of goods and services from rural centres sustaining the remote area. In 1996 The line stopped at Panitya due to gauge conversion at the state border. [1]
