Magnificently wreathed in billowing clouds of steam, the speeding locomotive was a symbol of the outside world to Australia's isolated country dwellers of the last century.
Townships sprang up near railway stations and life centred round them. Mail and provisions came by rail and arrivals and departures were governed by train timetables.
Australia's vast distances were finally conquered by railroad construction. Railway systems developed haphazardly, with guage widths varying from State to State and even from district to district.
The story of the train in Australia from earliest days to the present is told in the splendid full colour photographs and informative text of this book.
