The Adelaide-Darwin railway is a north-south transcontinental railway in Australia, between the cities of Adelaide, South Australia and Darwin, Northern Territory. From 2000 the line was extended from Alice Springs to Darwin as a Build, Own, Operate and Transfer back project by the AustralAsia Rail Corporation. The line sees the Great Southern Railway operated passenger train 'The Ghan' as well as freight trains operated by FreightLink.
