In August 1999, I took 140, my wife and a good mate over to Port Lincoln for a look at the Coffin Bay Tramway that ran from Proper Bay, near Port Lincoln, to a sand mine some 24 miles away.
The tramway (so called because only the Government could run a "railway") was the heaviest haul line in Australia when it was built. It worked only for a few years as a full time operation, with sporadic services being run from the mid seventies to 1992, when the last train ran.
I sought permission from its caretaker and later owner to access it.
This video is of the return from our night run, as we travel along the edge of Proper Bay, before rounding the final curve before heading into the depot.
