looks like the kalgoorlie loco shed has been badly damaged by a severe mini tornado/storm that came through the goldfields today(also lots of trees down and buildings damaged around town). several rollerdoors and walls etc damaged. maybe they will finally shut it down and shift it out to west kalgoorlie like they have been talking about doing since the standard gauge came through to kalgoorlie 40 odd years ago.

cheers,

We do not get tornados in Australia, never have and never will, more than likely a squall is what would have been responsible for the damage.

We absolutely definitely unequivocally without-a-shadow-of-a-doubt no-correspondence-will-be-entered-into that's-all-folks DO get tornados in Australia.

And no, I'm not quoting from Wikipedia. Mr. Green   How does the Bureau of Meterology grab you?

Maybe not enough of them to have a film with Helen Hunt in it, but they do occur in this country.

there is a small trip servicing facility out at west kalgoorlie that can be used when it is working. it is nothing substantial though.

They used to called a wirly wind or a very mild one a willy-willy when I was young, but they are both tornadoes in the true sense of the word though.
