This site has content relative to railway operations within South Australia. By "operations" is meant any operation related to railways, whether commercial or enthusiast-based, whether freight or passenger haulage, whether construction, remanufacturing, or just pipe-dreaming.
In the narrative section of the site, italicised small font notes refer to illustrations which it is hoped to place in the text in due course. These are not typographical errors.
I might (eventually) compile an historical archive written from my perspective. If you would like to contact me in this connection, please do so by email to richard.a --at-- internode.on.net
Where photos are used, they are acknowledged by the source. Thumbnail images associated with the text are used to link to a larger image which can be more readily examined.
Except where identified otherwise, all photography is mine and is copyright © C R W Ashton in the year in which taken. If you wish to make your own copy of any of my images, please do me the courtesy of asking first. If you do so, then I will be happy should you decide to use the image(s) wherever you wish, providing you post a credit for from where you got it or them. Equally, you should not use images belonging to others without their owner's permission.
It may be necessary to disable this larger image feature because all web sites are restricted in numbers of images because of the amount of disk space they occupy on the server. Please read the note about a way round this problem at the end of the "page".
I hope to be able to include some taken by others as well, and this product will be available for interested people to purchase at a low cost.
Verbal permission over the telphone was given by the Public Relations department of Westrail to feature historic photographs supplied by them to me a number of years ago, and thanks is extended to them, particularly as these photos will now be able to be included as full size 24-bit colour jpeg images on the CD-ROM sets, rather than the small 256-colour images on this site on the internet.
