G'day folks: can anyone enlighten us on authors of figures / mannequins at the EBA railway siding South Australia between Morgan and Mount Mary. I have done a search without any success ? Any help would be appreciated thank you

Hi Nick

Not sure of the condition of them now, but when we stopped for a look in April 2016, they were in good condition, but the bags were showing signs of wear from being exposed to the weather. Like you I was not able to find out who put up that brilliant display, and who ever it was, it is a credit to them, and I hope that they are still in the same condition and have not been vandalised.

Fiona had to have a phone up there as well, showing off our very special "Millie", the most faithful Blue Heeler that we have ever owner, and was 16 years old at the time of the photo.

Little did we know that just 6 weeks later, she was no longer with us and to this day, I can not stop thinking of this very special dog.



Cheers



Stephen

Hi Again Nick

Curiosity has got the better of me and I contacted the Morgan Community Hub and got onto a very helpful lady, and was able to give a full run down on the site.

It has nothing to do with Council and is all done and maintained privately by the farmhouse directly behind the old siding.

They change things around regularly and this Easter just gone, they apparently put lots of little rabbit figures around it to give it that special Easter feel.



Cheers

Thanks Nick and Stephen.
My chances of visiting many of the locations which are exposed on thisforum are limited.
Thanks to conversations like yours I'm able to vicariously visit these places.
Again, thanks.

Hi Rob

The EBA Siding is on a main bitumen road, but surprisingly many driver go past without even knowing it is there.

If you are ever passing when driving that road, it is well worth the stop.



Cheers
