The year before last, floods wiped out parts of the track so the train no longer comes to Cunnamulla. It stops at Charleville.
Some 49 years ago, as an 11 year old kid, my husband and his 15 year old brother went on a boys own adventure. They caught the train by themselves from Brisbane to Cunnamulla and back.
Ian wandered about checking out the railway station and looking at each wide verandahed hotel trying to figure out where they stayed.
