In the middle of 1959 a long legged black and white fox terrier turned up on the platform of Temora Railway Station. A smart and plucky dog, he was given the name Boofhead and it was soon clear that he thought trains were fun.  Spending more than 15 years riding trains across NSW at leisure but always returning home, Boofhead became known as Temora’s railway dog.

A lovely bronze statue now sits in the Temora Railway Museum as a tribute to Boofhead and his train adventures.
