Collarenebri, in northern New South Wales, Australia, missed out by 'that much' on having its own railway station. Instead, the planned line was cancelled nine miles from the town. In this video, we explore Pokataroo, the end of the line, and discuss what might have happened if the line had been completed to its planned terminus.

Old newspaper articles, letters to the editor, and public domain photographs sourced from http://trove.nla.gov.au -- an amazing resource and a rabbit hole you'll find yourself falling into!
