North Street‚ North Ipswich

Over its more than 150-year history, The Queensland Railways have taken thousands of photographs of everything from cracked bridges to crocodiles.

Drawing on the extensive collections held by the Queensland Museum Network this exhibition investigates the ways Queensland Rail used photography, from documenting rolling stock to capturing spectacular scenery.

The exhibition also tells the relatively unknown story of the Railway Appeal Board. This board was set up to pass judgments on matters where staff were charged with misconduct, as well as allowing staff to appeal against decisions they thought were unfair.

See on display exquisite glass plate negatives, an enormous camera designed to photograph railway blue prints and the Witness Box used by the Railway Appeal Board.

Included with Museum entry.
