Arrival of inaugural through trains,

The Standard Gauge "Trans-Australian" (1969)
and "Indian-Pacific" (February 1970)
at Perth Terminal constructed east of the city

Number of images: 31
Created on: Sunday 02 July 2006


The two tracks to the south-east (right in many of the photos) are Narrow Gauge (3ft-6ins or 1067mm) which was the gauge to which all other railways in Western Australia were constructed. The 5th and 9th photos show the old East Perth locomotive depot which was dismantled as a result of the works. The WAGR eventually built its headquarters over the terminal platform.

Apologies for the quality... scanned to a Kodak CD by Kodak in about 2002 from the original slides. I have printed images made some years before - which are better quality - but they are stored somewhere.
