Recalling QR in the 60s (BOOK)

For Queensland Railways (QR) the 1960s was the decade in which diesel locomotives displaced steam locomotives. It was also the decade when many branch lines were closed and QR started to focus on what it believed it should be doing. It was the start of the QR we have come to know today as a hauler of bulk commodities.

There are over 360 images from the steam era to the final years, 3 slideshows and 24 drawings of locomotives and wagons.

Union Jack

Union Jack

Jack O'Leary and his union — the Australian Railways Union played a major role in bringing corrupt politicians to account, an action that deeply affected Jack’s life and his family. As I began documenting Jack’s story, drawing on crumbling newspapers and bound minute books — each page, recorded in copperplate handwriting, signed by Jack — the characters jostled one another to leap into life. My role would be to ensure they told their tales truthfully.
