70%. The question about how many tunnels between Adelaide and the border was a bit obscure... to my surprise I got the questions about dual and triple gauges right.

Well, I went into this one expecting that I would get a score of 0%. I did actually know a couple of answers, a couple more were educated guesses, the rest of my correct answers were flukes. Somehow managed 50%.

Another enjoyable quiz, thanks @Spletsie.

I managed 90% courtesy of two wild guesses and two semi-confident guesses.

Had it been in reverse order such that one of the later questions could serve as a clue for one of the earlier ones, I would certainly have achieved one more correct answer Surprised

100% correct, 20% fluke, Adelaide to Melbourne tunnels was a somewhat calculated, mostly guess, I visited that roundhouse only about 6 weeks ago - otherwise I would have thought something different, flat out guessed the IP platform, shamefully, I had to think about the 'tunnel and bridge' question too long because I initially considered what the arrangement was heading east...

Reading the Jennings Webb book in the last six months helped with the dates and lengths, but I think I would have known them anyway.

The outstanding work was from you, all I did was click some boxes and get lucky with some guesses!

Has the Tailem Bend round house been demolished recently?

A good quiz.

A good quiz.

The roundhouse building has been gone for at least seven years, judging by it being absent on the Location SA Viewer satellite imagery of the area which shows The Bend Motorsport Park in very early stages of pre-construction site clearance and the solar farm site still looking very much like active farmland.

Thankyou again posting a well thought out quiz. Unfortunately I am not well thought out for SA rail infrastructure and only reached 45%.

Your quizzes are wonderful and thankyou making the effort. They are now part of the fabric of RP.

I am not an expert on the area, but I go through that area maybe four times a year.

When I hit that question I was struck by the fact that it might have been a mistake, thinking Tailem Bend had a roundhouse too, but also just having been to 'the right answer'. I thought about it for a minute and decided I couldn't even remember when it was that I last saw the old Tailem roundhouse, and realised it wasn't there anymore.

Even now typing this, I am not sure I can remember what it looked like. It's been gone a 'long' time.
