 The Historical Bit 

The 1964 Working Timetable for the  Wilmington Line  contained only two regular freight services through to Wilmington, running on Mondays and Fridays only. An additional service to Wilmington ran only "if required". On Wednesdays there was a freight service to Booleroo Centre, with two additional service available "if required".

The line had no signals beyond Gladstone Yard. Train order working was in operation on the line.

The 1982 working timetable consisted of a single freight service to Wilmington each week (on Fridays). The line was closed in 1990 and the track has since been removed.
