Lonely Rails in the Gulf Country (Book)

Lonely Rails in the Gulf Country (Book)

The Normanton to Croydon line was originally to go from Normanton to the Cloncurry copper field, but was diverted east after the Croydon goldfield boomed. During the brief heyday of Croydon, this railway, then with several locomotives and carriages and a fleet of wagons, was its lifeline. None of several schemes to extend it, especially to a better port, came to fruition....

In this THIRD EDITION, the history has been brought up to date, some corrections and additions made, and new illustrations added. The corrections cover how the steel sleepers were packed, where steel and timber sleepers were laid originally, the delay in constructing sections 2 and 3, the original location of Haydon, the camping quarters at Blackbull, and the altitudes en route.

The Forgotten Men at Grandchester Railway Station (Book)

The Forgotten Men at Grandchester Railway Station (Book)

Situated in Queensland's Lockyer Valley is the town of Grandchester and in the waiting room, a Roll of Honour bond pays homage to the 46 local men who served in World War I. At the time of the Great War, the railway station was the hub of the Grandchester community but its' importance gradually declined as cars, buses and trucks overtook trains as the main mode of transport to and from the town. Without the frequent reminder of the Roll of Honour board in residents daily lives, the names of that brave men were in danger of being forgotten.

In The Forgotten Men at Grandchester Railway Station, author Ian Curtis reminds us of the contribution that these soldiers and the small community of Grandchester made towards the war effort. It is a detailed account of these young men's experiences of war, from its infancy to the post-war period, when only 1 in 4 of the local men who joined up returned. And it is a snapshot of a typical Queensland country town, where its residents pulled together to support its volunteers during a dark period in history. These men deserve to be remembered. Lest We Forget.
