OUTBACK RAILWAYMEN

Life on the Commonwealth Railways

By Nick Anchen

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.
