“No one living in Australia today can remember life without railways, a sobering thought which points up the need for books such as All Stations West.  Although the industry is over a century old – the first railway train ran in Australia in Melbourne in 1854 – and is at once one of the nation’s biggest and most decentralised industries, surprisingly little has been written of it, at least in an historical sense.  Such output as there has been, quite understandably, mostly has been concerned with the State railway systems which, in aggregate, make up the industry.  This is because all the State railway systems were separate entities, and functioning as such, before Federation.  There has been remarkably little written about Australia’s railways, as a whole.  This deficiency makes the more important this well prepared documentary on the historical development of the Sydney-Perth standard gauge railway line.”
