I am interested in the internal layout of station buildings on the Trans Australian Railway west of Port Augusta.
While very small, I take it that they were designed to accommodate waiting passengers. Does anyone know what type of seating was/is provided (wooden benches fixed to unlined walls - just guessing)?
Prior to the early 1950s, many of the stations, such as Wirrappa, were staffed by railway employees. Their duties included the transmission of telegrams on behalf of the department and passengers, and the receipt of mail for local fettlers. Presumably, they occupied a separate space partitioned off from the passenger waiting area. If so, when approximately were the partitions removed?
I have tried to obtain plans of the stations without success.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
