Sydney’s Railway Heritage

The Dictionary of Sydney is thrilled to partner with the Australian Railway Historical Society to present essays on Sydney’s railway history. The essays are funded by the Transport Heritage Grants Program administered by the Royal Australian Historical Society.

Written by author and editor Bob McKillop, two new entries will be added to the Dictionary:
