A petition has been presented to State Parliament to re-open the Burra rail line.
Motel owner Paul Henley is behind a community proposal to reinstate the line between Burra and Gawler.
It was last used in 1992 by a heritage steam train.
The petition has close to 3,000 signatures, including from Victoria and Broken Hill.
Mr Henley says the line could be used for both freight and passenger services.
"You're creating more employment with spin-offs from the bus companies, hire car companies," he said.
Mr Henley said the rail line could ease the numbers of trucks on local roads.
