In the days where railways crossed land that was still being explored, the men who worked them had to be tough and resourceful.Patsy Adam-Smith has collected a rich host of humorous, historic, and tragic ancedotes from the navvies, guards, fettlers, gangers, station-masters, drivers, and other men and women of the Australian railways - men and women who, bringing character and life to the loneliness of the remote parts of Australia they opened up, were a vital part of our history.
