The Trans Australian Railway ran from Kalgoorlie to Port August. The line was constructed between 1912 and 1917 and was the largest Australian construction project up to that time. The project involved the first use of mechanical track-layers in Australia. The section between Ooldea and Nurina which was some 478km?s is the longest railway straight in the world.
