 The Historical Bit 

Terowie's only role was as a change of gauge location. Passengers and freight from Adelaide arrived from the south on the broad gauge (5ft 3in) line and were transferred to wagons on the narrow gauge (3ft 6in) line to continue north to Peterborough and onto destinations on the Broken Hill, Trans Continental and Central Australia lines. The reverse arrangement applied to traffic travelling south to Adelaide.

Passengers simply moved from one platform across to another at the station. Goods and livestock were manually moved from wagons of one gauge on one side of a transfer platform to wagons of the other gauge on the other side, or by gantry crane from one train to the other. Much later a bogie exchange system was introduced to help eliminate the manual handling of freight. By 1970 the broad gauge line was extended to Peterborough and the role and importance of Terowie was greatly reduced. By 1988 the line from Adelaide to Peterborough was closed.
