Je ne connais pas bien Andrew Forrest, mais ce que je viens d'apprendre sur lui me plait. PDG de Fortescue Metals, il est devenu récemment l'homme le plus riche d'Australie. Il possède des mines et exporte vers l'Asie. Ses concurrents lui ont apparemment refusé l'accès à un réseau ferré, il a donc construit sa propre ligne de train, qu'il loue à ceux qui veulent l'utiliser, et son propre port privé.

The company is building a mine, a railway and a new port at Point Anderson near Port Hedland. The railway is a heavy duty standard gauge one, with 30,000T trains up to 2.5km long. The railway is open access (infrastructure) which means that other mines will be able to use it for a fee.

The Fortescue Railway parallels another iron ore railway (the Newman Railway) for over a 100 km. Fortescue sought access to use this line, but the owner declined. A court case to gain access failed.

The Fortescue has a flyover over the Mt Newman Railway, and a crossing of the Goldsworthy Railway.

The new trains on the Fortescue Railway are fitted with Electronically Controlled Pneumatic brakes for greater performance.

The first shipment of ore is expected in May 2008.
