Yerong Creek is a closed railway station on the Main South railway line in New South Wales, Australia. The station opened in 1880 [1] and consisted of a weatherboard station building and signal box. The platform buildings were demolished in the 1980s and only a low platform remains at the site.

Layout[edit]

The station opened with a crossing loop of about 400m length. In 2010, the crossing loop was extended into a 7km passing lane. Exceptionally this passing lane has intermediate home signals protecting a level crossing and some wheat sidings which have the effect of allowing the passing lane to hold two trains in one direction.
