We used to travel through Mingary from Broken Hill to Peterborough on the Adelaide Express (a steam train) once a year heading to our Grandparents farm near Snowtown, SA. Since about 1970 the 3-6" railway line was abandoned and a new Standard gauge line replaced it on a slightly different route. There is little left of Mingary now, no shops or residences. The owners of Mutooroo station now are collecting stories about life along the railway line, I have given them a story 'Kings of Mingary' written by Allan King who grew up there in the early 1900's.
