Looking at the MTP, the AB service seems to run via Melbourne anyway?

Not just the rail that is closed.
Highway A1 is cut both north and south of Port Wakefield,
B84 is cut East of Port Wakefield
B85 is cut north of Port Wakefield
This leaves the town area as Isolated, Traffic chaos as the Long Weekend traffic to Yorke Peninsula is at it's peak.

A1 also subject to flooding in the Virginia, Two Wells area.

A1 is the only Road Train route from the north into Adelaide

An and ba services once ran via Melbourne but for some time from memory they now run via broken hill and Parkes.

ABC News reports the passengers will be bused to Adelaide, presumably not via Port Wakefield!

I would imagine PN will be holding a few trains.  Interestingly the AB6 services was not seen via Mount Lofty @Michelle12


Aurizon have already run MP1 as far as Adelaide.  There should be a reference via Mount Lofty.

AS for AB6 I think this has already gone north through Albion.

No BigTrain2015, Tomorrows passengers for 1AD8 will be bussed to Port Augusta and the Ghan will head north from there

Any idea when the track will re-open?

Are there freight trains waiting across the nullabour for access to Adelaide or are all non adelaide terminating freights running via Cockburn?

The cameras at Stirling have been idle since the Overland went through last night.
