Railway museum to shunt trains for Port rail line revival

The National Railway Museum says it may have to lose some rolling stock exhibits as it downsizes after losing land and tracks to a $51 million plan to return a passenger rail line to the heart of Port Adelaide.

Labor pledged before the state election to bring passenger trains back into the Port Adelaide city centre by rebuilding the mothballed Port Dock Railway, which runs off the existing Outer Harbor line and into the eastern side of the National Railway Museum.

The line has been closed since 1981. The Department says early works to revitalise the 1km railway will start later this year ahead of completion in 2024.

That was bound to happen to the museum. There's room to the south for the museum to expand, but I don't think they control that land.

Train services will return to the heart of Port Adelaide as part of the Port Dock Railway Line Project.
The first of 2,500 concrete sleepers for the project have now been delivered to the site, in preparation for major work to start early next year.
