Corporate entry Commonwealth Railways

Rail Industry


Commonwealth Railways was an Australian Government organization established to run the trains on the Trans Australian line between Port Augusta and Kalgoorlie in 1917. The company expanded over the years and also eventually took over the operation of the lines to Alice Springs (Central Australia Railway) and Darwin (North Australia Railway). Commonwealth Railways merged with the South Australian Railways in 1975 to become Australian National Railways, later known as Australian Railways.
