Whiteman Park – Railways 2014-2018

On the centenary of the First World War, Revolutions Transport Museum welcomes a travelling exhibition from the Queensland Museum Network titled Railways 1914–1918. Railways played an essential logistical part on the battle fields of Europe and the Middle East during the First World War, and at home in support of the far-away conflict. From recruitment trains that arrived at stations in country towns across Australia, to the troop trains transporting soldiers and nurses to their point of departure, train-side farewells were felt in every state and territory of Australia. In the theatre of war, the hard work, stoicism and sheer courage of men operating railways in adverse conditions on the front exemplified the fighting spirit and camaraderie of Australians. This exhibition presents a thought provoking mix of personal stories, imagery and objects that explores the role of railways at home and on the front in the war to end all wars, the First World War.
