Quick Overview

The Legendary Commonwealth Railways by Nick Anchen.

Hard cover. 208 pages. Published 2017


The Iron Roads of the Australian Outback - the legendary Commonwealth Railways - were built through some of the harshest landscapes on Earth. They were railways like no other, where men and women battled extreme temperatures, flash floods and maddening isolation to keep the trains running.

The focus of this book is squarely on the Central Australian, North Australian and Trans-Australia Railways, and features hundreds of stunning photos, not only of rail stock, but also of the rugged terrain the lines were built through. Nick Achen has combined many historical photos from the past alongside his own photography of current trains and their amenities.
