London Paddington Station

I did a cross EU/UK trip in May of 2022. Was taken aback by the sheer size and number of tracks at this station.

First of a series of photos I'll be posting occasionally!

Today's historic of the day: A narrow gauge grain from Orroroo, double-headed by Sulzer engined diesel locomotives NT67 and NSU58, has just arrived in the triple-gauge station yard at Peterborough, SA, April 11 1985.

Peterborough is about 250km north of Adelaide in the mid-north region of South Australia. It was a railway town that housed a depot serving railways of three track gauges radiating in all four compass directions.
