Sounds expensive and likely a maintenance nightmare!

Does the Indian-Pacific still change gauge at the WA-SA border?

When I rode the Indian Pacific last November we went right through the border at track speed, so I presume not.

I rode the Indian-Pacific in 1995, and it was standard gauge all the way. I think it has been since at last the 1960s.
