Port Augusta Rail Yard/Spencer Junction. Trains are stored here before departing for Whyalla or the Trans Australia Railway Line.
Railways were built in 1911-1914 to open up the mallee, and Karoonda was a junction with branch lines to Waikerie and Peebinga, both were closed in 1990, but the line from Tailem Bend to Loxton remains open and was converted from broad gauge to standard gauge. Karoonda briefly shot to international fame in 1930 when a meteorite fell to earth just to the east of the town on the night of 25 November.
