Quorn, Engine Shed

Quorn, still a railway town in the mid-North of South Australia, is home to the Pichi-Richi Historic Railway. The Engine Shed was used as such in the heyday of railways here, when through-trains could carry passengers as far North as Alice Springs.

Lancelot Pub

Lancelot’s the town that never was. It was laid out in the late 1800’s, the pub and a few minor buildings were built, and it stopped right there. My great grandfather was the licensee, and my maternal grandfather, aged 2, fell into the underground tank below the kitchen floor and nearly drowned. Fortunately, the kitchen staff were quick off the mark and pulled him out again. Today the ruins of the pub sit on private land about 15 kilometres from Peterborough.
