This is the untold story of the hundreds of New Zealand railwaymen--shunters, builders, engine drivers, firemen, engineers, who answered the call to construct and operate a railway network in the Western Desert during the Second World War. The Desert Railway is a tribute to the courage and enterprise of these railwaymen who kept the trains running no matter what.
