Old Tailem Town (South Australia) rail display

The web page for Old Tailem Town Pioneer Village claims that it has a kilometre of track and 19 "carriages" on display.
Has anyone visited this Pioneer Village to ascertain what is actually there?  
Google Earth suggests that a number of vehicles are spread along what appears to be a disused rail track or siding, very much out of use.
Any reports would be greatly appreciated.

Some photo's in the Gallery on the site and also on the weekend notes site.  Bogie Vans, fuel wagons and guards van.  Also parts of a breakdown train eg  Camp kitchen car,  End platform sleeper and van.  Has other rail infrastructure as well, signals, water columns and a wooden railway station building.  Looking at the sidings shows the rail ends not connected to the next length of rail so I suspect this was not an original siding as such but installed specifically for the Pioneer Village.
