TTCE: The Ghan
Posted 19 September 2009 - 05:24 AM
The Ghan is a passenger train operating between Adelaide, Alice Springs, and Darwin on the Adelaide-Darwin railway in Australia. Celebrating 80 years in 2009
Operated by Great Southern Railway and with locomotives provided by Pacific National, the journey takes 48 hours to travel the 2,979 kilometres (1850 miles).
The service's name is an abbreviated version of its previous nickname The Afghan Express, which comes from the Afghan camel trains that trekked the same route before the advent of the railway.

I have spread my dreams under your feet.
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
