Just down the road from Rydal, via the locality of Sodwalls, is the next small town Tarana. It's another railway town and the junction of a short 24km branch line to Oberon.  An active railway historical society is working on getting this line opened again as a tourist attraction.   It would be a nice ride, the farmland around here is lovely.

See and learn more of Tarana over at 100 towns.


  1. The rolling, wooded hills are certainly lovely.

  2. I think it's a great shame there are so many defunct railway journeys around the countryside! I applaud the volunteers bringing them back to life - but they wouldn't have to do that if the governments that got rid of them had had any foresight!
