Peterborough, Railway town
Over the last 40 years I have visited Peterborough in the mid north of South Australia on many occasions. My wife grew up there and we still have family living there. We try to visit them often. Up until recently I haven’t really bothered taking many photos of the town.
Peterborough is a very historic town and was settled in the early years of our state’s development. It became a very important railway centre for many years and this is still celebrated throughout the town. Over recent weeks I have featured some photos of railway related items around town. On several occasions I have mentioned the local museum known as Steamtown. Outside the museum stands a beautiful old steam locomotive which I have featured in today’s photos.
Please note that in the final photo, the loco is NOT pulling a caravan. It is just that a tourist has parked right behind the coal tender. If you look carefully you can see the 4WD which is attached to the caravan.
