The Parkes to Narromine railway line is a railway line in New South Wales, Australia. The line forms part of a cross country route between Cootamundra on the Main South line and Werris Creek on the Main North line.[1] It is owned by the Rail Infrastructure Corporation of New South Wales, but is managed and maintained by the Australian Rail Track Corporation under a 60-year lease signed in 2004.[2] The line is used mainly for grain haulage, with several silo facilities located along the line. Passenger services ceased in the mid-1970s and there are no surviving passenger stations on the line. The station building at Peak Hill has been relocated to a nearby sportsground.
