    Steam town Museum

    September 1, 2019 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 9 °C

    Peterborough was the steam train hub of South Australia, extending to Broken Hill over the NSW border and even Alice Springs in NT.

    When diesel came along a combination of beuracratic manipulation and other factors saw the decline around the 1960s.

    Seeing the presentation in the evening brought together quite a few things we had seen as we tripped from Broken Hill, Silverton and on up to Maree.

    August 27, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 4 °C

    We decided to spend the night in Peterborough. We were lucky to get a spot in the van park. There was a Ferguson tractor Rally and the BMW motorcycle club. 29 veteran tractors and about 80 motorbikes.

    If we had been just a bit later arriving we would have been camped somewhere else for the night.

    The tractors travel about 109 kilometres per day at the speed of the slowest tractor. In this case 15kph. Generally they try to travel on minor roads.

    Rhe motorbike on the other just go. They were planning ove 500k on this day but sometimes go further. Being adventure riders they stay off the major roads and get down and dusty.

    Peterborough, Steamtown Rail Centre

    June 29, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    The Steamtown Heritage Rail Centre is a little information centre with a railway museum.
    We didn't do the whole tour but it was still very informative to learn about railway travel in the 1960s.
    I definitely recommend this for all train enthusiasts.Read more
