Standardisation

Lionel had a great sense of history.  He understood that the introduction of standard gauge to the SAR Peterborough division was an historic event.  At the same time as the standard gauge was being constructed, the broad gauge line from Adelaide was being extended from Terowie to Peterborough.  With both these events in view Lionel compiled a documentary collection of their introduction.  This section is now complete and gives access to over 300 original document.  The bulk of the documents consist of relevant pages from the SAR Weekly Notice as well as Train Notices issued from the office of the divisional Superintendent.  There are also carbon copies of documents which Lionel kept from his role as Loco Inspector.  The documents are listed in chronological order and the table gives other basic information about each one. Highlights include:

  • Train Notice of the first standard gauge movement on the division
  • Train Notice of the first standard gauge movement in Peterborough Loco
  • Train Notice of the last railway picnic train to Ucolta
  • Many signal notices with yard diagrams
  • While not directly related to standardisation, a document from 1953 giving a description and instructions for the introduction of the 400 class Beyer-Garrett
  • A record of the first broad gauge movement from Terowie to Peterborough
  • Celebration plans for the standard gauge opening.
