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.
