This is the third installment in the RAQ series and covers the history of the famous closed railway to Wooloongabba and Sth Brisbane.
Good use has been made of archival images, cleverly blended into contemporary scenes with motion picture film taking us back to yesteryear.
The changes in the Southbank area are huge and would be unrecognisable to younger viewers.
Many classes of now defunct steam and diesel locomotives and other rollingstock are shown, along with long forgotten stations and placenames.
Most of the footage is drawn from private collections which has never been presented to the public. There are great scenes at the Gabba five-way crossing with its bell and flag man; the loco depot with coal stage and elevated turntable and extensive sidings along the riverbank.
This program represents considerable expenditure of time and effort in research and sourcing the visual material.Its a benchmark Australian product which stands up to the best international railway DVDs.
5out of 5 STARS!!!!!
