I was lucky enough when driving away to look in the rear view mirror and see what was 'that special shot'. Near the crest of the hill were newish green permapine fence posts with nice squared off tops.  So improvised the post as a BIG MONOPOD.

TEROWIE


Today the small town of Terowie still survives even though it has been abandoned by the railways and the main road detours around it. In the days of steam there was always the noise of locomotives on the move. In the later years Rx class 4-6-0's on the Broad gauge were replaced by 500 class diesel electric shunting engine, but on the narrow gauge steam reigned supreme in the form of two T class engines right up until the end in 1970.

Terowie was a busy transhipment centre with both broad and narrow gauge tracks serving the goods shed. The transferring of goods from a broad gauge wagon to a narrow gauge wagon and vice versa was both labour intensive and slow. Bogie exchange was the answer in the 60's. Progress has to come and the goods shed, like the almost forgotten coal tippler of the mid 40's and 50's, was finally abandoned. The opening of the broad gauge link from Terowie to Peterborough in 1970 was to put an end to this once bustling railway centre. The final blow came when the broad gauge line was later closed and ripped up. Terowie entered the 90's with no railway, just a few surviving relics of more prosperous times. The 10th January 1970 was the last official day for narrow gauge operations at Terowie.
