Good name for a TV series maybe.

This however is part of the Beresford Railway siding on the Old Ghan railway line.

It’s just off the Oodnadatta Track south of William Creek.

The shed was overshadowed, among other things by a cockie in a previous post.

The old Ghan line was started in 1878 but it was 31 years before it reach its destination, Alice Springs. It hasn’t been used for 30 years but this shack and the others at the Beresford siding have resisted neglect and the ravages of time rather well.

Worth a look if you are travelling the track and there’s probably as whole TV series your could centre this around too..

I’ve found a Map of the Flinders Ranges and Outback that might be a good reference for those unfamiliar with the area.
