A blog that deals with the Adelaide to Melbourne main railway line, both in prototype and to modelling Horsham.

Tailem Bend again
Further photos in regards to Tailem Bend, from the 1990's. The remains of the round house, originally built 1923-1926 was of 14 stalls, with 11 stalls been tracked. Half of this building was lost during a storm in the 60's, the remains to a bulldozer in 2003.
Tailem Bend Round House from the rear. The track to the left headed to the work shops at the rear of this building.
Loco service yards, with fuel depot, sanding tower and Loco office to the right.
To model the station and yards, one would have to consider at least 12m, let alone the grain silos at the Adelaide end of the yards.
