The Old Ghan - Historic Railways in Central Australia

Two narrow-gauge railways, the Central Australian Railway from Port Pirie to Alice Springs and the North Australia Railway from Larrimah to Darwin, were intended to be the two ends of a transcontinental line to open up the interior and replace the Afghans and their camels who had pioneered the harsh, arid desert. The story of their building and their years of service is a great railway adventure. Work began in 1911, but the 1000 km gap between them was not filled until 2003, with the opening of a new standard-gauge line, the 'new' Ghan.
