I remember the Coogee loop being mentioned somewhere in the forum when it was put in but I can't find it. The passing loop was put in around Coogee Marina under Cockburn Road bridge by turning the narrow gauge duel gauge for a distance. I also remember that a bit of money was spent on this the idea being to increase the freight traffic to the port. I live next to the line between the passing loop and south beach single section and by the timing of trains passing I wonder if the passing loop is ever used. Has anyone ever seen this in use or was it just another waste of money.
As a side thing, when this was being put in I wondered why they did not double track duel gauge all the way from the Junction at Bibra Lake to south beach, that meant that you could have had trains passing on the go and this would have increased traffic greatly. I read somewhere recently that Watco moved enough containers in a year to Fremantle to take 100,000 truck movements off the road, if this was trebled the discussion about Roe 8 and Leach Hwy would go away, but our Governments are not rail minded.
