Highly classified area with extreme security to look after all the cash that has passed through that area over the years!

All plans were handed over to State Records I believe. Protrans doesn't have them anymore, so not available from that source.

Old Coffin Bay line, near Port Lincoln?

Gypsum trains work between Kevin and Thevenard (Near Ceduna), but trains do not work between Wudinna and Thevenard anymore, only occasional loco transfers.

I completely understood that sentence as it was written.

By changing it and adding a word, you have changed the whole meaning of the sentence and twisted it around to suit your views.

Whether you ag ...

Any idea on the total consist/load they are lifting out of Kevin now, Peter?

Lets build lines further out past Goyders line. The people will come and the rains will follow the plough and everyone will make their fortunes in the middle of nowhere.

[quote=CPH8]That line was used for carriage storage. I remember seeing a string of SAR "dogboxes" there in the mid 1950's. The SAR ran a special overnight train to Melbourne just after Christmas Day 1 ...

When I was there earlier this year, there was no line into the City centre or silos. The line stopped at Tookayerta. I assume this was done when they standardised it.

Great info!

In terms of a rough timetable, are they still departing Pinaroo loaded around midday?

Yes, in the very early days it was known as the Nairne Railway.

Peter, is the barracks still in existence at Minnipa, or is it long gone?

Also, just wondering if you know whether Rick and Marge Elefsen still run the pub at Minnipa?

Thanks,

Wayne

Are you thinking of something like Thevenard to Kevin, which changes at Penong Junction,

OR are you asking about a section of line which was Up at one point in time and then changed and became a DOWN ...

Maybe a little bit more information would be of a general assistance to the uninitiated.

Where is he located?

Is email the only form of contact?

David is almost correct.

When Inprotrans moved, the records at Islington were taken over by the Govt. and are currently being catalogued by their archives dept.
