That meant Campbelltown to city by bus, then city to Outer Harbor and back, city to Gawler and back, city to Bridgewater and back, city to Noarlunga Central and back and finally, just for a laugh on the teacher's part, city to Glenelg by tram and back, then the bus home which, by this stage, was well past the school finishing time. And they wonder why I went to the absolute minimum effort to pass my subjects, if I tried at all.

the train was also a one of a kind known as a super chook Front and back car was a converted red hen made to look like the jumbos (the ones that you can still ride now). the superchook is now preserved by the lions club and runs Kadina <--> Bute
Also notice on the second picture that there is a desto on the train, years back they actually had route numbers for the train!

What I like about the 3000 series railcars is that even if one car does break down (which they often do) the other car can still be used to get the train home, albiet somewhat late.
Although, that benefit it far outweighed by the rock-hard seats some of them have.
