Also, viewing the satellite pics on Google Earth, the formation is clearly recognisable WITHIN the Army fences, where it has remained largely undisturbed, including remnants of the Holdsworthy POW camp.

Even I, who know the line intimately (from outside the Army fences!) am finding it difficult in some locations … other sections are a little easier, such as the bridge over Harris Creek with its “CofA GCC 1917” inscription.
Incidentally, when the line was opened in 1917, the terminus was at Holdsworthy with the “d”, while the present area and new station is known as Holsworthy (without the “d”).
And, to answer the original question …. No!

In many ways, a line taken over by suburbia is more difficult than bush takeovers. In the bush there is often something to trace (even if you have to wait for a bushfire to reveal it), whereas urbanisation can remove ALL traces, as in the example you quote (for much of its length). Google Earth with Hairylegs' overlay readily reveals just how total that destruction has been in the urbanised parts of Wattle Grove etc.
