Here below are a couple of pics of the Adelaide RWS - showing what remained of the old original platforms and how things were going to be changed forever to the new way. This is of course before further remodelling work was done which ruined the station and made it what it is today  "A place where the fumes congregate" or a windswept hole in the earth devoid of oxygen and character."  Well done to the clowns who did this - certainly no awards for this idea. Progress.

TARLEE

December  2008.


Tarlee when the trains still worked through here 'a little'. Now in all probability will never see another train pass this way. Looking at GWA train graphs - lines only show as far as Farrell Flat / Saddleworth. Roseworthy on the other line is probably the only Broad Gauge silo to be serviced by rail. All the rest are doomed I would say Balaklava /Owen / Hambley Bridge.  END OF BROAD GAUGE is fast approaching.
