Hi all
I am heading to Tasmania next month. As I only have limited time
I was wondering what freight rail lines are still open? I would like
to take some photos of some freight trains in action.
Any help is greatly appreciated

This is probably the best place to look and was updated last month:

I will also be heading to Tasmania next month to visit the inlaws (that already means limited trainspotting).

Pity the line into Hobart is closed now (Heaps of awesome spots along there) I was thankful I got a train there in May 2014. I found this thread helpful at the time, not sure it is as up to date as the above website.


That site seems to indicate a lot of stuff just runs at night. Bit of shame but I guess at least there is still trains to see in Tasmania.
