The railway arrived on 20 June 1932 with the opening of the line to Boggabilla.[2] In the 1980s, with the closure of all traffic except grain, the line was cut back to North Star which has the last silo on the line.

The proposed Inland Railway could see the line restored north of North Star, though it would take a new alignment in the direction of Toowoomba.

Website[] was launched in November 2011. It is a community run and built website featuring a calendar of events, Speakers Corner (a page for discussing community issue and achievements), as well as information on the local P & C and CWA fundraisers and events. The CWA are responsible for the creation of the website and it is hoped one day a page will be created solely aimed at encouraging tourists to discover all that this little town has to offer.
