Within the rail yards next to the Bendigo Train Station, there is a huge old industrial building.
It is made of red brick, perfectly laid. Its sides are marked with arches that are high and wide and contrasting bricks on their edges to emphasise their grand sweep.
It's called the Roundhouse. It was used sort of like a garage for diesel engines and for steam locomotives before that.
In its centre lies a turntable, a huge steel structure which accommodates a locomotive, and then spins around to enable the locomotives to be stored in a circular spray around the shed.
Listen to Robert Trigg, who worked in the Roundhouse of 37 years, and Ted Barkmire who started working with trains in 1955 talk about some of their Routines on ABC Radio.
