Railways have been essential to the economic and social development of Australia and New Zealand, transporting commodities from inland farms and quarries, and linking distant cities. This volume charts 34 of the most rewarding rail journeys in the two countries, each illustrated with colour photographs and a map, from New Zealand’s TranzAlpine to Australia’s Spirit of the Outback. It traces the history of each line, gives technical details of the track, locomotives and carriages, and highlights features of interest along the route.
