Aussie railway posters

While looking for the photos used in yesterdays, post, I found some more shots, this time of Australian railway posters hung on Trevor's railway room wall. I thought they looked fantastic at the time - you can almost feel the heat from the lands they advertise.

Trans-Australia Railway poster

I'm assuming the camel partly refers to the Ghan, a traditional camel train that was the only way of crossing the desserts before the train arrived.

Central Australia Railway poster

Is there much to see in the middle of Australia? Surely it's mining towns and creepy crawlies that can kill you?

Trans-Australia Railway boomerang poster

A boomerang, we really are in a land down under.
