Synopsis   
The author traces the efforts of the pioneer railway builders to serve a growing population in a new land, why different gauges were used in different states, the engineers who devised the routes and the best means of getting from point A to point B, the importance of railways to trade, the politics and building of the transcontinental line to Western Australia, the various people involved in running the railways and the much sought standardisation of railway gauges. The vastness of the topic makes fascinating reading for both the railway devotee and those interested in Australian history. The hard cover book is generously illustrated and contains an index.
