This acclaimed documentary produced by Anthony Buckley in 1974, is a pioneering tribute the NSW based 3801 steam locomotive. We travel along with the locomotive, viewing the train from all angles thanks to the matchless photography of Dean Semler. There are long shots of the train travelling at full speed, close-ups of the driver and fireman and shots of the passengers enjoying a very special journey. We are taken through the years; we see soldiers going off to WW2 when the 3801 was brand new. You are unlikely to see a finer tribute to Australian steam.
Also includes ‘They Shot Through Like a Bondi’ – a celebration of the long extinct Sydney tram and ‘When The River Was the Only Road’ – the epic story of the great paddle steamers that journeyed along the Murray and Darling Rivers.
