New Release in the Museum Shop

– Soft cover book “Railway Stories from the Cornish Triangle 1920 - 1955”


Compiled and edited By Daniel Hall


"Railway Stories from the Cornish Triangle 1920 - 1955" covers stories and events of the railway line through Kadina, Wallaroo and Moonta in South Australia, beginning at the change from narrow gauge to broad in the 1920s, to the first glimpse of modern trains in the mid 1950s. Stories of amusement, tragedy, celebration, lucky escapes, large feats and acts of heroism provide an interesting glimpse of what life was like on the railways of the Cornish Triangle in the first half of the 20th Century."
