Actually - I'm convinced now that this is the Waipa River Bridge - the background looks different today with houses and trees. I first visited this site in about 1971 and it was like this (I've spent all day thinking about it). This was a dairy farm and I walked the formation between the main road and the river

I'm trying to find a current photo

Yes - I'm wondering it it's the Waipa River Bridge abutments on the Glen Massey Line...

It is a railway line with significant communications overhead line bearer circuits so unlikely to be a NZ branch line, unless they were old NZPO lines along the rail corridor at that point. Looked to me as if it could be in Australia somewhere??? ...allan neilson

I think likely to be North Island - contributor Tony Hinton can't recall it. I thought that this was one on the Kaihu Branch but he hasn't been to the branch.

Hopefully we can work it out because I suspect we are likely to have seen it
