SteamRanger Heritage Railway Upgrades

The SteamRanger is a historical railway operating a number of different heritage steam and diesel hauled tourist trains between Mt Barker and the coastal holiday towns of the Fleurieu Peninsula.

DRASOL were engaged by Coleman Rail to carry out level crossing replacement works at two locations where timber sleepers were still in place in the road pavement.

Services included:

  • Pavement and track removal
  • Bulk excavation
  • Formation treatment and reinstatement
  • Drainage and signalling infrastructure
  • Sleeper installation
  • Ballast & pavement reinstatement

Due to its rural location one of the crossings was reconstructed whilst maintaining traffic flow through the site, an unusual scenario where DRASOL’s ingenuity and ability to operate outside of the square enabled the smooth completion of the works.
