On the final episode of this podcast series, we meet a man who has been working on the railways for 50 years and hear some of his stories from the tracks.
I bump into Dougie in the lounge on the train on the final evening on board. He works on the Ghan and, as it turns out, he’s pretty much the most-experienced employee. He tells me that he started working on the railways in Australia 50 years ago.
Dougie has quite a few stories from his time on the tracks and in this episode he shares some of them with us.
Listen to the episode here:
I hope you’ve enjoyed coming along for the ride, hearing about how the train works and visiting the stops we’ve had each day in the centre of this incredible country.
If you have liked the podcast, I would really appreciate it if you could review it online and share it with anyone you think might enjoy listening to the episodes.
I’ll be back with another series about another adventure soon. But for now, I’m Michael Turtle from the travel blog Time Travel Turtle…. and this has been Journey on The Ghan.
