BHP's Port Lincoln Operations

Line Removal

These were taken April 6, 2001, just west of Port Lincoln Tuna Processors. The guys reckon they had four months to go.

These photos were taken right by the Fish Factory. The photo on the left looking towards the Proper Bay Depot, the photo on the right looking towards Coffins

Labour intensive, the work is done by hand. The bars are used to pick the rails up and roll them to the left.

This photo is just east of :The Fish Factory" (building in right of pic). The curve led around to a kink, followed by a dirt crossing to a boat ramp.

Crates ready to collect the base plates

A glorious morning, this is the end (as you come from Proper Bay) of the big embankment skirting Proper Bay. Sadly no more.

Foot of the rail, This photo does not show the corrosion well.
