The classic narrow-gauge Central Australia Railway may now exist only as scattered collection of disparate remnants, but they should prove compelling to travelers. Plus, the Commonwealth Railway NSU class feature among a number of them. Also, as mentioned on the South Australian page, One Rail Australia’s CLF/CLP Class locomotives can find their way this far north on freight services, but you would have to be very lucky to find one leading a train.
- The Old Ghan Heritage Railway & Museum is part of the National Road Transport Hall of Fame collection of displays and exhibits in and around the city of Alice Springs. The primary railway display, including streamliner NSU58, is centered on MacDonnell Siding about 10 kilometres south of the city while NSU53 is perched alongside the nearby Stuart Highway to advertise the museum. NSUs 59 and 64 are also on site but the degree to which they can be seen and accessed by the general public is not known.
- Just over an hour south of Darwin is Australia’s northernmost streamliner – NSU63 on display beside the highway. It forms a monument to the days of the Commonwealth Railways and is part of the Adelaide River Railway Heritage Precinct.
