The Charm Of Narrow Gauge From 1900 - 03 Nov 2014
While the discovery of steam power 200 years ago powered the Industrial Revolution, the world long ago shunted most steam trains onto the sidings of history. But in one small corner of rural Australia, the sights, sounds and smells of the Industrial Revolution remain very much alive. In the picturesque Dandenong Ranges on the eastern outskirts of Melbourne, Puffing Billy is Australia's last steam engine railway.
