The Pichi Richi Railway is the most significant remaining section of South Australia's pioneering railways. It is noted for its early use of concrete, its dry masonry walling and its wrought and cast iron bridges. The Pichi Richi Railway Preservation Society is entirely run by volunteers, as a working museum operating steam trains for the public using historical procedures. A well defined management strategy has been developed, but the Society still faces many problems.
