           The Old Ghan Today
The original narrow gauge railway is closed and most of the original track
has been removed.


However approximately 25 kilometres are still maintained for the Old Ghan train and museums are located 10km south of Alice Springs at the MacDonnell Siding.
There is a 1930's style railway station built from the plans originally intended for Stuart (Alice Springs). The dispay area includes the station, a museun, a souvenir shop, tea rooms and restored carriages and locomotives.
In 1878 work began on the Great Northern Railway which was to cross the middle of Australia from Port Augusta to Darwin.
The Southern section of the line finally reached Alice Spings in 1929 and the train that ran on this line became known as The Ghan.
The Ghan was named after the Afghan camel drivers who had contributed to the development of communication and transports links in inland Australia.

After the Old Ghan ceased running, it was replaced by the Legendary Ghan now travels to Alice Springs on a standard gauge railway from Adelaide via Tarcoola, west of the old track.
