UPDATE:
we have finally descovered the railway station location
 and that the railway did not circle the community of Cape Broyle
as i had first thought,it comes into town on your right
 as you enter Cape Broyle from Tors Cove,as you travel
on the highway running thru town,you well come across
a concrete wall on your right,you are now following the
railway's right of way as it was before the highway
was brought thru and built up over the old rail line.
Now with that being said,the track kept to the extreme
right of Cape Broyle,and followed the hillside into the
valley directly straight ahead,and leaves Cape Broyle
as quickly as it has appered,the river that runs across
the highway near Ultramar gas station,the railway crosses
this same river twice,we have followed the railway
into the valley and walked across two old tressels still
spanning the river,with a new top deck built over it.
