Video of Rail recovery operations post narrow gauge Central Australian Railway shut down 1982

Hi All

Check out this video, taken at Marree in 1982, post the shut down of the narrow gauge Central Australian Railway shut down.

OH&S was not so prevalent back in 1982, note the way they transfer the rail from the narrow gauge rake to the standard gauge rake without using a crane, very interesting.

Here is a video of NSU56 passing Lake Eyre (south) in the South Australian outback, and a cab ride at Curdimurka, the bridge just looks way too skinny.

Pulling up the Central Australia Railway William Creek 1982, its worth it just to see these guys scatter.
