When we think of trains we think of steam trains, those wonderful mechanical marvels that for more than 50 years, huffed and puffed their way across the continent. Ride with us through South Australia's Flinders Ranges aboard the Pichi Richi Society's Afghan Express, the Pichi Richi Explorer and Steam Motor Coach One, affectionately called "The Coffee Pot", as our cameras capture the romance and grandeur of a bygone era.
Meet the Conductors, Guards, Firemen, Drivers and the dedicated volunteers whose passion for steam keeps these magnificent relics of yesteryear running on the rails. For lovers of trains and all things steam, this program offers the ultimate steam train adventure through some of the country's most beautiful settings.
The Pichi Richi Railway, preserving the past for the present and the future.
