"Outback Railwaymen Life on the Commonwealth Railways" explores the life and times of three extraordinary railways - Central Australia Railway, North Australia Railway and Trans-Australian Railway  -  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.
