An entertaining look at railway events in Australia in the month of September—from 1848, when a meeting was called to start a railway company in New South Wales, to 2013, when the great Bayer-Garrett AD6029 steam engine was restored to working order.Author David Burke has crafted a ‘diary’ which documents, day by day, major happenings to do with railways in Australia—from the days of steam, to diesel, to diesel-electric and electrification, covering the first trains that ran between New South Wales and Queensland, and to Melbourne.
