Current Issue Australian Railway History

Cover Photo: (Click for a larger view)
The task of 'trans-shipping' at South Australian break-of-gauge railway stations was a major source of employment
in many rural communities. Terowie was the best known and longest standing break-of-gauge station and this scene shows a contractor's gang of 'trans-shippers' and all the paraphernalia associated with transfer arrangements—ropes, sack trucks, tarpaulins, cranes and just sheer muscle. The SAR uniformed person in this circa
1900 photo is likely to be a check porter. Note the extraordinarily tall lower quadrant signal in the background.
