Steam in Australia: South Australia and Queensland. South Australia has the most eclectic mix of rail gauges on the continent including broad, standard and narrow gauge. All gauges are shown! Small rural passenger trains tie together a nation of vast, dry emptiness chugging through the desert and across the outback. The 400 Class Garratts remain as some of the last steam in Australia hauling silver, lead and zinc from the massive Broken Hill mines to Port Pirie. Small brightly painted 0-6-0 engines ferry freshly cut sugar cane to the mills near Bundaberg in a remarkable 1900 mile two-foot gauge empire. This is real Australian steam just exactly as it was! Filmed by Ken Macleay 43 minutes

Steam in Australia: Victoria and New South Wales. Highlights include a holiday excursion train for school children meandering along the shore in South Geelong to Queenscliff. In the richest gold mining town in Australia is another kind of gold for trolley enthusiasts: a fleet of 4-wheeled trolley cars built by J. G. Brill of Philadelphia, or manufactured from Brill designs, all at work in vibrant street and onboard scenes. In New South Wales 30 Class passenger steam leaves from Sydney and works in the environs beyond. The unusual looking but powerful Garratt locomotives take on the heavy job of hauling coal, often in the infamous brakeless 4-wheeled wooden coal hoppers designed in 1863. High-speed streamlined 38 Class Pacifics are featured pulling the "Newcastle Express" The wide variety of motive power includes switchers, express, passenger and freight engines, some nearing a hundred years in age. This is real, working Australian steam! Filmed by Ken Macleay 44 minutes
