Fascinating piece of railway line here. Wondabyne was the terminus before the Hawkesbury River Railway Bridge was constructed. This was originally single track going to the bridge despite the bridge being dual track in anticipation of duplication.
In the end, the bridge itself was converted to gauntlet track after the duplication either side took place, to ensure no two trains passed each other on the then compromised structure due to be replaced.
