Main West line to Nevertire and Sydney

The Warren railway line is an operational railway line in New South Wales, Australia. It is a 20–kilometre–long branch from the Main West line at the town of Nevertire and heads in a northerly direction to the town of Warren. The line opened in 1898[1] and is used for grain haulage.

Current state[edit]

The line is unballasted and causes severe speed restrictions over the entire branch. The Auscott siding 5 km north of Nevertire serves an adjacent cotton processing facility which opened in 1995. Today[when?] the line has been proposed for closure due to its condition.[citation needed]
