The Narngulu to Mullewa Railway is approximately 100km long, in 2002 only grain trains used this section, in 2004 they will share the tracks with iron ore trains. There are no CBH facilities on the line, except at Mullewa. This means over 3 million tonnes will be potentially hauled over the line in a year.
 
A crossing loop exists at Northern Gully, the loop sits at the top of the climb from Narngulu and is 40km from Narngulu. A train order non-crossing station also exists at Indarra (between Northern Gully and Mullewa). This allows Control to break the section up further to allow flexibility in train operations, although trains cannot cross there.
