Australian Railway History

Australian railway history is full of fascinating stories of the challenges and struggles that faced the men that built our nation’s railways.

This site’s contribution to subject is to bring you the history of the equipment that was used … and is being used … to keep Australia’s railways running day and night, 365 days a year

You will find plenty of historical photos that will show you that equipment from a bygone era when, if you wanted to go somewhere, the only option was to go by train.
