Description

Quorn, South Australia is the centre of a remarkable railway operation, the Pichi Richi Railway. The Pichi Pichi Railway Preservation Society was formed in 1973, restoring trackwork between Quorn and Woolshed Flat by 1978, and to Port Augusta by 2001. This stretch of the old Ghan route, a distance of 39 kms is now a major railway attraction in the Flinders Ranges, running trains on a regular basis. The Pichi Pichi Pass is regarded as the most picturesque section of the old Ghan route and can now be appreciated again in the time honoured way, behind steam.
