Summary

This is the story of an evolution. It covers the dramatic change in Australian transport over the twenty five years after World War Two. In that time so many important changes occurred.
They include the sorting out of the railway gauge problems; the dieselisation of the railways; the Hughes and Vale road tax decision; the arrival of containers and roll-on roll-off shipping. Best of all, the marriage of road and rail freight operations.These things did not happen by nature taking its course; they happened because driven men could see a better way. One of the leaders of these men was Ken Thomas.

Good story

Interesting story. Well worth a listen.

The narrator isn't the greatest with a habit of overstating the same details repeatedly, which can get annoying.
