A history of the railways of New South Wales

by John Gunn

“The social revolution of the early railroad – that shrank distance and relaced the animal power of the bullock wagon with an energy source never before available – emerged contemporaneously with European settlement of the vast Australian continent.  Both were to develop together, throughout the nineteenth century and beyond, along parallel lines.
John Gunn has combined two stories that are rich in their variety and significance.  The result is a sparkling history of the railways of New South Wales – from their beginnings in 1850 – and of their impact on people and places.”
