On the Monday before the Warrah centenary, Charlie Shuttlewood's daughter Florence Paterson, from Manilla rang up Elizabeth Gallagher, and introduced herself. She later sent some info and
more photos which arrived the day before the centenary. As things were so hectic at the time no-one was able to devote much time to them.
Florence is 73, and she lives
with her husband at Manilla. They only heard about the centenary from the Prime News coverage on the TV just a week or two from the day of the event. They would have loved to have attended the centenary, but as they are both elderly, they decided not
to. Florence also was once in possession of the fabulous photo of the "Warrah Station" steam traction engine that is in the Quirindi's historical cottage museum, and she kindly donated it to the museum to keep forever, plus a few other photos.
I remember my great uncle, Ron Barwick telling me about a time when the Warrah steam engine was driven up the Warrah road to the highlands to do some job up there. He said with
all the smoke and steam, plus all the noise of the engine and the wheels on the gravel, that it spooked all the cattle and horses along the road as it went up.
