The project has a 10 - 15 year projected life so engineering for a +30years as is typical for rail systems will over-capitalise the concept and kill it.  I was thinking along the lines of the sugar cane railways in North Queensland or the timber railways in SW WA.  These are usually 2’ gauge systems.


4000-plus tonnes per day plus the weight of the locomotives and vehicles (in both directions) needs a pretty substantial construction standard to survive a week, let alone 15 years.

Axleload is a key  consideration.
