Station and crossing loop.
Prior to 1956 when the narrow gauge line from Port Augusta to Maree was closed, Minvalara was used by loaded Leigh Creek coal trains to prepare their fires for the long climb up to Peterborough.
Minvalara was no longer in use after 1970 and had been removed from the working timetable by 1982. The line from Peterborough to Eurelia was closed to normal traffic in 1988 and was fully closed in 2002. Most of the track was removed in 2008.
Today the only indication that Minvalara was once a railway location is the remains of part of the platform.
