"Watering the Trains" Mullewa Things to Do Tip by keeweechic

Mullewa Things to Do: 59 reviews and 153 photos


The station, goods shed as well as the water tower and 25,000 gallon tank have been placed on an interim register. The watering pipe to fill the Iron Horses that travelled through the town was made in Wales. It was the fireman’s job to fill up with water and this could be done fairly quickly through a 4” hose. It was used from 1904 through to 1955 when diesel trains emerged.
