Night Train to Capertee

Night train to Capertee, a short story in a 1950 issue of the Bulletin. was written by the Australian journalist and author Charles Shaw (1900-1955). Shaw wrote many short stories, and at one time was the rural reporter for the Bulletin magazine.

Night train to Capertee fictionally documents the experience of travelling on the night mail train from Sydney to Capertee sometime during the 1930s or 40s.

This piece certainly challenges the nostalgic view many have of rail travel in the steam age. The story can be viewed here.
