Look Out For Suburban Train - The Transition Years (BOOK)

Look Out For Suburban Train - The Transition Years (BOOK)

The Brisbane suburban rail system in the 1950s and early 1960s was a far cry from the world class system of today. Electrification, was still a long way off as the decade of the 1960s dawned. Indeed it was not until november 1979 that the first electric services commenced from Roma St to Ferny Grove and Darra. This book captures some of the images of those times as Queensland Rail entered the transition years of the 1960s.

Look Out for Train 4 - The Marburg Branch (BOOK)

The Marburg Branch was one of the shortest branches in south east Queensland but part of it still survives today.

Turning a dream into a reality - The Story Of The Great South Pacific Express (BOOK)

Turning a dream into a reality - The Story Of The Great South Pacific Express (BOOK)

In the early 1990s, the biggest structural upheaval in Queensland's railway history was to spawn a project so breathtaking in ambition and imaginative scope that those who witnessed its birth, growth and completion would look back on it in wonder as a near miracle of design engineering and construction. This is the story of a special train — the Great South Pacific Express and of the people who built it. It is dedicated to those who created and shared the vision ol building one of the worlds most luxurious passenger trains, to the designers and engineers who turned that vision into a workable reality and, above all, to the workers of Queensland Rail's Townsville Workshops who took on the most formidable challenge of their working lives and emerged, triumphant, with a masterpiece that will remain a testimony to their dedication... the best train in the world!

Railways of Caboolture, Woodford and Kilcoy (BOOK)

Railways of Caboolture, Woodford and Kilcoy (BOOK)

2009 was the centenary of the opening of the railway branch line from Caboolture to Woodford which connected Woodford to the rail network of the state and, doubtless, brought the state capital much nearer. It would have made living and working in the district less remote from the facilities of both Caboolture and the capital city and brought Brisbane within a few hours of Woodford rather than a days' horse ride. The railway was extended to Kilcoy four years later. For just over 50 years the line served most of the transport needs of the area but by 1964 many rural railways were being closed or neglected and had services withdrawn. The line was closed beyond Wamuran in 1964 and services were suspended from Caboolture in September 1996. Today it is doubtful if locals ever give a thought to the railway that was a vital link in the lives of those living along it in the previous century.
