Description

CENTRAL AUSTRALIA RAILWAY - NORTH AUSTRALIA RAILWAY - TRANS-AUSTRALIAN RAILWAY "Outback Railwaymen - Life on the Commonwealth Railways" explores the life and times of three extraordinary railways, through the recollections and humorous stories of a selection of retired railwaymen and women. These were the hardy souls who kept the trains running through some of the harshest and most forbidding landscapes on Earth - the railways in the great 'Back of Beyond.' They endured appalling climatic conditions, with scorching summer temperatures, howling dust storms and raging floodwaters, along with the ever-present danger of accidents and derailments, and the overwhelming isolation and loneliness that is the Australian Outback. 3 x 12 page colour photo sections
