COMPANY PROFILE Brook eld Rail is a private operator of over 5100 kilometres of open access, multi-user rail infrastructure throughout the southern half of Western Australia, from Geraldton in the north, to Leonora and Kalgoorlie in the east, and south to Esperance, Albany and Bunbury. Spanning an area twice the size of Great Britain, Brook eld Rail's network currently carries in excess of 55 million tonnes per annum (mtpa), including iron ore, alumina, bauxite, grain, interstate freight and passenger services.
