Summary Track: 34.87 km Stations: 0 / 5 in use The Kunama branch (commonly known as the Batlow line) lies in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range in the south of the state. It was built as an extension to the Tumut line, branching off at a junction near Gilmore. From the junction, the line heads up the picturesque Gilmore valley before climbing the hills to the town of Batlow. The final section, from Batlow to near Kunama is one of the few sections in NSW to be formally closed, in 1957. The line here has been lifted. The other half was closed in 1984. Today very little evidence of the line beyond Batlow remains, except the basic formation. Name Facility Status Opened Closed km Links
