Eyre Peninsula Railway
The network consists of about 600 kilometres of route and carries mainly wheat and gypsum to Port Lincoln. Genesee & Wyoming Australia operate all traffic on the Eyre Peninsula rail network. The railway is isolated from the main system, and there has never been any justification for a connection to the main system. It is the only remaining 1,067 mm (3 ft 6 in) track in South Australia.
- Port Lincoln to Wudinna (Seasonal grain trains)
- Cummins to Kimba (Seasonal grain trains)
- Thevenard to Kevin (Daily gypsum trains)
- Wudinna to Penong Junction (Limited use only)
- Kevin to Penong (Closed)
- Kimba to Buckleboo (Non-Operational)
- Yeelanna to Kapinne (Non-Operational)
- Coffin Bay to Proper Bay (Closed and dismantled)
With the prospective development of iron ore traffic, a new port at Sheep Hill north of Tumby Bay has been mooted. This would require a 27 kilometre branchline from Ungarra and upgrading of the remaining track.
