Reseña del editor:

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Tea and Sugar Train (also known as Slow Mixed Goods Train No. 5205) was a specific train that provided service to isolated Australian towns on the Nullarbor Plain between Kalgoorlie and Port Augusta along the Trans-Australian Railway. This train was significant because in its early years of service provided all the supplies used by remote towns in South and Western Australia. The Tea and Sugar Train began in 1917 as a supply train for workers constructing the Trans-Australian Railway. Railway workers depended on the train for every necessity as the rail link was the main form of regular transport into the region. The train travelled along the world's longest stretch of straight track, which is straight for 478 kilometres (297 mi).
