There is some error with this track. The Neika Pipeline track is here: https://www.google.com.au/maps/dir/Fern+Tree+Tavern,+680+Huon+Rd,+Fern+Tree+TAS+7054/-42.9371338,147.2417501/-42.9326661,147.2024213/@-42.9357941,147.2010372,14.75z/data=!4m10!4m9!1m5!1m1!1s0xaa6e76382c9b63fb:0x571983ce565bd143!2m2!1d147.260582!2d-42.922651!1m0!1m0!3e1 and I'm not sure that there was a railway involved.
