|A pickup service from Peterborough to Gladstone servicing the grain storage silos at Yongala, Jamestown and Caltowie.
The Historical Bit
The Terowie-Peterborough-Quorn Line was roughly the dividing line in the state of South Australia between the grain producing region and the cattle and sheep grazing region. West of the line there was enough rain to produce one crop of grain each year. East of the line the country was too dry for crops and could only be used for grazing.
The grain storage silos followed this pattern with many of the locations west of Peterborough (towards Port Pirie) equipped with grain loaders while locations east (towards Broken Hill) had only livestock loading facilities.
