Current Issue Australian Railway History

Cover: At Mount Gipps, 3303 has possibly just relocated the guard’s van from the Menindee end of an emergency water train to the Broken Hill end, before running light to Broken Hill for turning and servicing. Mount Gipps operated as an unloading point for these trains from 4 March 1952 until the end of the scheme on 13 June 1952.
State Records Photo/Negative E52301.

The Fish
Above: An emergency water train unloads into the 540ft of fluming installed near the intersection of Crystal and Bromide Streets at Broken Hill on 6 February 1952, shortly before the unloading facility at Mount Gipps [main cover photograph] was opened, therefore decreasing the distance these vital trains had to cover.
