On a walk in Port Adelaide, I had cause to change my perspective a few times. This national trust building (over 100 years old) has had window grills fitted at some time, and the bright geranium drew my attention to them.
One is for The Ghan, a train that goes from South Australia to the Northern Territory and the other is a small steam train that travels the foreshore from Semaphore to Fort Glanville, in South Australia.
The Ghan is 2979km long and has a standard gauge of 1435mm (Wikipedia). The origins of the name are disputed, although both theories mention the Afghans, who once operated a successful camel train through the centre of Australia.
Semaphore Steam Train track is 2km long and has a 457mm gauge. That’s ten times smaller than The Ghan.
A popular tourist or family activity, particularly during the holidays, it runs along the foreshore, parallel to both the road and the tide and is a great sight, whether you are on it or viewing the people waving from open carriages.
