Access[edit]

Most of the locations along the railway line exist in reserves with limited or no access allowable, or are positioned next to a road that has been closed and has no access possible: the few locations that are accessible have either landing strips for access by plane and roads that run north from the Eyre Highway. Most of the identified locations in this list are ruins or have very few services or facilities.
