The line branches from the Main West Line at Dubbo It opened in 1903,[1] and carried passenger traffic until the 1970s. 900/950 class railmotors were first introduced on the service between Dubbo and Coonamble.[2] It continues to carry goods traffic, predominately grain. The disused historic Coonamble railway station is currently at risk of demolition due to vandalism and high maintenance costs.[3] The line is owned by the Rail Infrastructure Corporation of New South Wales, however operations over the line are managed by the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) under a 60-year agreement.[4]

To properly handle heavy wheat traffic, the track needs to be upgraded from Class 5 (30 kg/m rail) to Class 3 (40 kg/m rail).[5]
