A Boutique Accommodation from Yesteryear


Bruce, the sleeping car, arrived on site to couple with Annie in late October. Bruce is named after a station in the Port Augusta – Quorn rail line (now known as the Pitchi Richi Railway). It is a first class sleeper with ten apartments (upper and lower) that entered service on the East-West Express between Port Pirie and Kalgoorlie in 1927. A small lounge area with a self service breakfast bar has been established in Annie, the dining car next door.
