Along the Old Ghan Line
A GUIDE TO DISCOVERING THE OLD GHAN RAILWAY
The twelve-hundred kilometre narrow gauge railway from Port Augusta to Alice Springs served the Outback of Australia for 100 years. The once or twice a week passenger train became known as the ‘Ghan’.
Partially by-passed in the 1950s, the old narrow gauge line was closed in 1980 and the rails pulled up.
Although the rails have gone, there is still much to see along the route. The author has compiled this Guide to the old railway – what is there and what was there and how to find locations, mostly through his own travels and with his photographs taken over more than fifty years.
The book includes 500 photographs, track plans and a wealth of detail about the railway.
