Rails around the Spencer Gulf
During mid-August, Chris Walters spent a few days touring the eastern and western shores of South Australia's Spencer Gulf, and brought back some fascinating snapshots of the region's 'rail hot spots', including Port Pirie, Port Augusta, Whyalla and the Eyre Peninsula.

The Silver Star
Next to the Port Hedland Tourist Information office, and only a block from the harbour, is a stainless steel observation car partly obscured by trees, which serves as a popular cafe. Peter Clark tells the intriguing story of how an observation car built in 1939 for an iconic American diesel train found its way to the Pilbara.
