The line then commenced a down grade towards the Campaspe River. It crossed an unnamed and closed road at the top of the cutting, entered a 30C radius left curve just before another track crossing, crossed a culvert, an Allotment Line, straightened at the entrance to long Bank 43, crossed an unnamed watercourse culvert, crossed a sandstone reef, entered a 40C radius left curve, crossed an Allotment Line, straightened, crossed an Allotment Line, followed by the named Native Creek via a 13 x 15' and 1 x 20' openings (6.1m) bridge, which also crossed an unnamed and unaltered road (Axedale-Kimbolton Road) cut a fence, entered Bank 44 and levelled.
The line then entered a bridge section, crossed another unnamed and closed road (a couple of pre-existing or planned roads in this part of Axedale no longer exist, as the area became a public reserve and is now the Axedale Golf course), and entered the main 99 x 20' openings (1,980' or 603.66m total length) Campaspe River bridge. The river itself is shown as 8C 50L wide, with a flood level of 517'. The line enters today's private Marydale property and the 13M point is then reached.
The line then entered a 40C radius left curve, entered Bank 45, cut a fence, commenced an up grade, cut another fence, straightened to cross a 3 x 15' openings (13.72m total) bridge, "serving as a foot crossing", and entered a 40C radius left curve. It cut a fence, straightened, crossed a 3 x 15' openings (13.72m total) bridge, "serving as an Occupation Crossing", crossed the Parish Boundary (Axedale/Knowsley), entered a 40C radius left curve, and passed a stone wall as it entered an area of bluestone boulders. It then entered Cutting 50 with sides reaching to 32', straightened, passed a diverted gully, entered a 40C radius right curve, entered short Bank 46, crossed a special 3' barrel culvert, entered Cutting 51 with up to 16.5' sides, cut a fence, exited to a low Bank 47, crossed a culvert, entered Cutting 52, crossed an Allotment Line, entered a crab hole area and ended the boulders section. The line then straightened and reached the 14M point.
Cutting 52 is exited just before an Allotment Line is crossed, and the line then runs on a short surface forming, over a culvert, an Occupation Crossing with gates, another culvert, Cutting 53 is entered, the crab hole section ends and the bluestone boulders recommence. The line continued on a down grade, into Bank 48, crossed an Allotment Line, crossed a culvert, entered Cutting 54, then Bank 49, crossed a 3' barrel culvert, commenced a long 1 in 114 grade, making its way to the future site of what was originally called Ingham Siding.
