This file contains ALL tracks in the WHOLE OF AUSTRALIA, whether open or closed; mainline , siding or yard; government, private, tramline, timber tramway, industrial railway, temporary construction railway, incline etc.
Anything that anyone might consider a "railway", regardless of gauge or purpose.
This is a work in progress. What do you think about it?
Have a browse around. You will be surprised at what you will find.
This is an update and replacement for previous individual State files that I have been making available. It is the interest shown by this forum that has inspired me to make the whole country available.
I have also included a HUGE range of named localities (in a layer that is turned off by default, so as not to cause too much clutter).
I have been working on this for some time, will continue to expand and improve it, and I am open to suggestions for additions or improvements (if you want to add a missing section of track, a marked-up map is preferred).
To make use of this, you need to download and un-zip my file from the Railpage Australia™ "Downloads" section (see link under "content" on the left of the page you are looking at now), in the "Google Earth" sub-section.
Then, if you have Google Earth installed, just double click on the file that you have just un-zipped and Google Earth will start, and it should automatically show you the tracks overlayed.
If you don't have Google Earth, you need to download it first (from Google, it's free), It's a pretty big download. Then install it.
