I've Seen a few Videos on the Internet and Social Media recently at the old Ghan Museum of People Getting locos Running, minor trackwork, ect. People seem to be trying to get it running again. IDK what more to say, but good luck to them.

They have 500m of track, would be nice to have more, but more cost.

At 1:28:51 you can see a train order issued, so theres at least some form of paperwork being done.

There about appox 3km of track that can be run on and if the level xing gets put back in again over the sth stuart hwy there is nearly 10km of track to run on again. Just a bit of a washway near the first siding we used to run trains to almost 15yrs ago. Also alot of track has been remove by old mangement around the hall of fame area that use to link the yard up to the triangle back to the stuart stn which will need to be replace back in again rerouted as the kenworth truck shed in where the line used to run to the triangle from the sheds and yard area. Alot of Alice Springs Bussiness and local goverment are now getting back on board since new mangement have taken over the hall of fame. Have been up to Alice for 6wks now of the last 2-3mths to help get thing on the ball. Nothing mush will happen now until next yr now as the 3-4 main people from Sa have return home. Its a start and hopefully with more funding on way ect we can get it running again in 2-3yrs time
