THE YEAR IN RETROSPECT

1n 1963 /64, despite the increase in Working Expenditure, a gratifying result was achieved w ith a profit of £520,443. Goods traffic on the Trans-Australian Railway exceeded all previous records and other traffic generally was greater than in the preceding years.

The grow th of traffic over the Trans-Australi an Railway is satisfying evidence that a marked accelerated development can be expected when this railway becomes part of a standard gauge transcontinental railway in 1968. In the section of this report devoted to standardisation, I have given some details of the action already in hand to plan for the "through" services and the united national action taken to publicise more adequately the scope of Australian Railway services.

In my previous report , reference was made to the rehabilitation of the track on the Trans-Australian Railway as one of the most important maintenance projects. A ten year programme has been adopted for this work with priority being given to the relaying of 33 ft. long 80-lb. rails and face resleepering. On completion, the rehabilitated track will

be to an equivalent standard to that observed in the construction of new standard gauge lines in Western Australia and South Australia.

The first year of this programme has now been completed and the results achieved were most satisfactory. The increasing me asure of mech anisation in track maintenance adopted in recent years has been amply justified , as without m achine assistance, it would not have been possible , with the limited manpower available, to handle the rehabilitation work and maintain the track generally. This year's programme included 72 miles of

relaying, distribution of llO,OOO cu. yds. of ballast, 40 miles of face resleepering and 95 miles of baseplating. Its successful completion indicates that, even without improvement in m anpow er, we can achieve our planned upgrading which, in any future year, provides for a m aximum of 90 miles of relaying , 170,000 cu. yds. of ballast , 20 miles of face resleepering and 100 miles of baseplatin g.

The combined Working Expenditure and Capital cost of track upgrading on the Trans-Australian Railway will be almost 2 million pounds per annum for the next nine years. More than half of this cost is being m et from Working Expenditure .

On all railways the services were free of serious interruption s due to storms or floods, but passenger services on the Trans-Australian Railway and Central Australia Railway were disrupted for four days because of a stoppage of work by wages employees of the Dining and Sleeping Car Service. Matters in dispute were settled by negotiation.

Comptroller of Accounts and Audit.

Continued and solid growth in our business is illustrate d by the new record in earnings of £7,678,525 and the resultant profit of £520,443 compared with a profit of £360,689 in 1962/63.

Features of note in earnings and operatt ng costs are:-

EARN INGS

Total Earnings on the Trans-Australian R ailway were £4,978,254.

Although earnings for passenger traffic on the Trans-Australian Railway fell slightly below those for the previous year (which latt er were greatly influenced by travel of visitors to Perth for the British Empire Games and Australian Bowling Carnival), they still conform to the steady general upward trend in passenger traffic which has been apparent in recent

years, and the earnings of £820,444 are considered satisfactory. A slight reduction is also evident in earnings from the dining car service.

Following the pattern referred to in last year's report, goods traffic has once again produced record earnings, the receipts for 1963/64 of £3,461,990 being £328,188 in excess of those of the previous year. Livestock traffic also increased , with earnings being £84,203 as compared with £69,010 in the previous year.

Central Australia Railway earnings totalled £2,384,855.

Greater patronage of the passenger service on the Central Australia Railway is reflected by a 7.5o;o increase in earnings to £133,444. Go ods traffic on this Railway has again produced record figures, the total earnings being £2,039,393. This increase is again mainly as the result of conveyance of an increased tonnag ~ of coal from the Leigh Creek Coalfield to the Port Augusta Regional Power Station- a total of 1 ,615,071 tons being transported this year, compared with 1,474,745 tons the previous year. However, once again we can place on record the continued growth of general goods traffic apart from coal carried over this railway. Earnings from movement of livestock also showed an increase , whilst increased earnings from the Dining Car Service were commensurate with the growth in

passenger patronage.

On the North Australia Railway passenger traffic is negligible , but an increase in goods traffic was recorded, producing an overall increase in earnings for the year. Total earnings for this railway were £173,642.

On the Australian Capital Territory Railway, increases m both passenger and goods traffic occurred, but the total earnings on this railway amounted to only £59,886 for the

year.

EXPENDITURE

To cope with the influx of business on the Trans-Australian Railway, as reflected in the increase in earnings, it was necessary to aggregate greater train and engine mileages than in the previous year and this resulted in increases in total train operating costs. Locomotive running costs increased from £515,545 to £543,640 and Traffic Transportation costs from £617,108 to £653,907. Repairs to locomotives and rollingstock increased from

£605,690 to £674,632.

7

Track ma intenance costs reflected the increased actiVItie s in the resleepering and rehabilitation programme. Resleepering costs increased from £299,6 20 to £370,057 and relaying figures for the year are £496,660 compared with £463,955 in the previous year. A further large increase in costs was £65,000 incurred in works associated with east-west aerial com munications trunk route.

To cope w ith the increased traffic on the Central Australia Railway, additional train and locomotive mileages were recorded when compared w ith the previous year, resulting in increases in total costs for Locomotive Running - £296,939 as compared with £267 ,203 in the previous year- whilst Traffic Transportation costs increased to £344,441 as against £313,203, and Dining Car operations £39,493 from £32,809. Maintenance of locomotives

and rollin gstock cost £357,893 as comp ared with £303,224 incurred previously. These increases in costs were offset to some extent by a decrease in Way and Works Branch costs, those for the current year being £478,8 70 as compared with £520,290 in the previous year.

Costs of operating the North Australia Railway, amounting to £225,589, were slightly in excess of those of the previous year, increases occurring mainly in track maintenance and rollingstock repairs.

Expenditur e of £66,649 on the Australian Capital Territory Railway remained at approximately the same level as previously. [ncreases in traffic handling costs were offset by a reduction in track maintenance costs.

TRANS-AUSTRALIAN RAILWAY

GOODS TRAFFIC

The tonnage of Inter system goods traffic carried over the Trans-Au stralian R ailway demonstrated an encouraging pattern of development and was in excess of the record tonnages handled last year. The total through traffic conveyed was 311 ,159 tons, comp ared with 271,662 tons handled during 1962/63 and 240.851 tons in 196 1/62, representing increases of 15 7c and 13 7c respectively.

-----Motor cars being conveyed "piggy-back", Trans-Australian Ra ilway. "Piggyback" transport proved even more popular with road haulier s than in previous years, revenue from this source alone amounting to nearly £1,000 ,000. There were also substantia l increases in wagonload and container traffic to Western Au stralia , and in respect of timber railed from the West.

LIVESTOCK TRAFFIC

Livestock traffic was again comparatively heavy, largely due to traffic for developing pastoral holdings in the Rawlinna and Naretha areas served by the Trans-Australian Railway.

PASSENGER TRAFFIC

Although passenger traffic between the Eastern States and Western Australia was well sustained , the total number of through passengers who travelled over tLe Trans-Australian Railway, viz. 73,807, was 3,929 less than the record number of through passengers carried in 1962/63. Last year's exceptionally high figure was due 1:0 increased patronage on

account of the Briti sh Empire Games and the Australian Bowling Carnival held in Perth.

However, the number of through passengers carried this year shows a continuation of the growth pattern established in previous years as shown in the following table:

Year 1959/60 60,789

1960/61 67,490

1961 /62 69,356

1963/64 73,807

The carriage of passengers ' motor cars at concession rates continued throughout the year, a total of 2,880 vehicles being conveyed, compared w ith 2,772 during 1962/63.

9

PERMANENT WAY

R eference has been m ade elsewhere to the excellent progress made with rehabilitation

of the track on the Trans-Australian R ailway. Despite manpower difficulties , outstanding

results are apparent not only on m aintenance of the permanent way , but also in the gradual

upgrading of the track to standards comp arable with those being adopted for new standard

gauge projects throughout the C ommonwe alth.

Approximately 72 miles of track was relaid during the year, compared with just over

55 miles the previous year. ft is anticip ated that 90 miles of welded 94-lb. rail will be laid

m 1964/65 and 90 or I 00 miles per year thereafter , dependent on the supply of new rails .

The greater portion of the resleepering programme was again carried out by special

gangs. 219,433 sleepers were laid in the track. This included additional sleepers provided

m connection with respacing and strengthening of the track.

No additional concrete sleepers were installed. However, the experiments with these

sleeper s have proved very successful, particularly from the aspect of information provided

by the pot type unit produced to this Department's design.

A ballast train again operated practically without interruption , working from the

quarry at Loongana. Ballast was also run out from stockpiles at Stirling North, Tarcoola

and Karonie. Contracts were completed for the supply and delivery of 100,000 cubic yards

and 10,000 cubic yards of ballast at Loongana and Stirling North respectively , and a further

contract was Jet for the supply of 300,000 cubic yards at Karonie.

Approximately 95 miles of track was baseplated in 1963/64, bringing the total mileage

of track which has been baseplated to 367 miles.

To facilitate . the crossing of double-headed trains , two new crossmg loops were

constructed to provide 3,300 feet of standing room, and three other sidings were extended

for the same purpose.

An increasing measure of mechanisation m track maintenance and relaying brought

into use a wide range of new machinery, which will be further extended next year.

An order w as placed during the year for the supply of large capacity gang cars to

transport members of special mechanised gangs to and from work.

Further improvements, including individu al sleeping compartments, gas operated stoves

and hot water systems, refrigerated cool rooms, electric light, etc., were effected in the mobile

camp accommodation provided for special mechanised gangs.

ROLLINGS TOCK FOR CARRIAGE OF MOTOR VEHICLES AND

MOTOR BODIES

For some years. large num bers of motor vehicles and bodies have been carried over the Trans-Australian R ailway from the m anufacturin g and assemb ly works in the E astern States to Western Australia. In the past. vehicles have been conveyed on special motor vehicle wagon s which, in effect, are flat wagons fitted w ith an open superstructure. to allow loading

of motor cars in two tiers . A rrangements are now being made to enclose the ends of m otor vehicle carrying wagons. fn addition, upper decks w ill be fitte d to these wagon s to prevent dama ge to vehicles on the lower tier caused by liquids dripping from cars on the top.

Special motor vehicla train , Trans∑Aushalian Railway.

CENTRAL AUSTRALIA RAILWAY

GOODS TRAFFIC

There was a further increase over the previous year m goods traffic on the Central Australia Railway.

The tonnage of Leigh Creek coal, which is the m ajor commodity transported, rose by approximately 140,000 tons to 1,615,071 tons. There was little variation in the quantity of copper concentrates produced at Tennant C reek and railed from Alice Springs to Port A ugusta, for export to Japan. A total tonnage of 32,150 tons was conveyed.

The other principa l freight increases were in respect of containers, wagonload and "piggyback" traffic.

11

Perishables: In recent years, carriage of perishable traffic over the 1,000 miles journey from Ad elaide to Alice Springs and the 2,000 miles journey to Darwin has been arranged in ice-cooled containers supplied by this Department. However, in view of the extreme conditions experienced in the Northern Territory and in order to meet the increased demand for refrigerated transport, it has been decided to adopt the mechanical means of refrigeration and an order has been placed for the supply of six 40 ft. mechanically operated units.

LIVESTOCK TRAFFIC

Although livestock traffic on this railway was again meagre, there was an mcrease m the number of cattle conveyed when compared with the preceding year.

There was some localised improvement in the drought conditions which have existed in the far north of South Australia and in the Northern Territory for several years, but the pastoral outlook generally is discouraging. Many properties are almost denuded of breeding animals, and re-stocking wi ll present a major problem when the drought eventually breaks.

Giant os∑ standard gauge sheep van-capacity is more than iw ice ihat of a norm al sheep wagcn .

PASSENGER TRAFFIC

The twice weekly passenger service to Alice Springs agam operated throughout the year, and the number of through passengers carried set a new record.

One of the modern first class standard gauge lounge cars was placed on 3' 6" gauge bogies and operated on the narrow gauge section of the Central Australia Railway as from 9th April, 1964. This was a further step in the improvement of standards of comfort on this railway.

A fixed menu was reintroduced in the dining car service providing the same high standard of meals as on the Trans-Australian Railway. A liquor service has also been provided.

12

PERMANENT WAY

During the year approximately 8 miles of track was relaid w ith secondhand 80-lb. rail, recovered from the Trans-Australian Railway. It is proposed to relay 5 miles in 1964/65.

The number of sleeper renewals totalled 5,641 on the standard gauge section and 89,212 between Marree and Alice Springs.

Distribution of gravel ballast continued throughout the year from the Stevenson River Pit and 28,890 cubic yards of ballast were run out. Production was restricted as a result of extensive flooding which occurred in May , I 963.

Heavy rains caused minor track dam age on tw o occasiOns, but train services were not seriously delayed.

During the summer months consider able difficulty w as experienced with sand drift , necessitating the use of mechanical equipment to clear the line at many locations.

In order to provide adequate standing room for double-headed trains, crossing loops were extended to approximately 2,250 feet at two locations.

NEW STATION BUILDING. ALICE SPRINGS

An improved facility for rail tourists to Alice Springs and the Northern Territory , as well as for Commonwealth Railways employees, in the form of a new station building was officially opened on 11th April, 1964.

The previous station building had become inadequate and the replacement building , which is of modern design, has been welcomed by local resident s as further evidence of the confidence of Commonwe alth Railways in the development of Alice Springs and the Northern Territory.

NORTH AUSTRALIA RAILWAY

Good s TraHic

The tonnage of goods traffic transported over the North Australia Railway rose by 2,914 tons. The increased tonnage resulted from the carriage of approximately 1,000 tons of m achinery, stores and equipment required in connection with the construction of a new aerodrome near Katherine, and an increase in the number of motor vehicles and containers

conveyed.

In order to provide a more suitab le service for goods and livestock traffic , arrangements were recently made to replace the weekly rail car service between Darwin and Katherine w ith a second weekly mixed train between D arw in and Larrimah.

Livestock Traffic

Despite the recent establishment of export abattoirs at Darw in and Katherine, the anticipated increase in livestock traffic did not eventuate .

Due to handling difficulties in Hong Kong and previous losses of cattle during sea transit , there were only three shipments from Darwin.

Passenger Traffic

The operation of road services is still seriously affecting passenger traffic , which agam decreased this year. Revenue from this source totalled less than £1.000.

PERMANENT WAY

Routine maintenance was carried out during the year. The permanent way between Darwin and 42-miles is in poor condition, and relaying of the old 40-lb. rails between Pine Creek and Darwin is necessary, and mo st of the bridges require re-decking .

A loop and spur line was constructed at Tindal in the vicinity of K atherine to facilitate the unloading of equipment, cement, etc., railed from D arwin in connection with the establishment of a new airfield.

GANTRY CRANES

Freight handling was greatly facilitated by the provision of electrically operated overhead travelling gantry cranes of 20-ton capacity , at both Darwin and Larrimah.

ELECTRICITY SUPPLY, PINE CREEK

At Pine Creek, the station building, resthouse and five departmental residences were connected to the Northern Territory Administration electricity supply. Electric refrigerators were also installed in the resthouse and residences.

AUSTRALIAN CAPITAL TERRITORY RAILWAY

GOODS TRAFFIC

There was a further increase in freight traffic conveyed over this railway, and a recent extension to the goods shed has∑ ~ssisted considerably in handling the heavy traffic.

166,968 tons of freight were handled during the year, compared with 143,826 tons in 1962/63, 129,395 tons in 1961 /62, and 101,292 tons in 1960/61.

PASSENGER TRAFFIC

Air and road competition affects passenger traffic on this railway; however, there has

been a slight increase in railway patronage.

The number of passengers conveyed was 76,976, representing an mcrease of 2,188 over the number carried the previous year.

SIDING ACCOMMODATION, FYSHWICK AREA, CANBERRA

Additional spur sidings were constructed to serve the rapidly expanding industrial area at Fyshwick, and delivery of goods direct to Fyshwick relieves congestion at the

terminal.

WELFARE

A s related in previous reports , welfare services are regarded as of major importance by Co mm onw ealth R ailways. Assistant Welfare Officers were appointed during the year and have been of great assistance in overcoming many of the problems encountered by employees.

The Welfare C ar wa s again utilised on the Trans-Australian Railway for Infant Welfare purposes, also by various religious denominations and representatives of the Good Neighbour Co uncil, and for the usual distribution of gifts, sweets, etc., to employees' children at C hristmas.

A cinema on wheels has now been added to the welfare services provided by this D epartment. This mobile picture theatrette brings regular motion picture programmes to employees and their families who live on the Trans-A ustralian R ailway and the standard gauge sectioP of the Central Australia Railway.

The picture theatrette has seating for 60 persons.

There was littl e variation in membership of the Commonwealth Railways Institute . Total membership as at 30th June, 1964, was I ,586, compared with I ,607 members at the close of the previous year.

The Commonwealth Railways Institute Library agam proved popular, particularly with employees at line locations.

A further innovation which will be greatly appreciated by employees in isolated areas is the proposed issue of indoor sporting equipment. In conjunction with the Institute , arrangements will be made during the current year to distribute dart boards, quoit sets and table tennis equipment to approved camps, on an experimental basis.

Employees continued to make good use of the holiday houses provided by the Department at Glenelg and Alice Springs.

As in recent years, an Award was made to the Apprentice of the Year. The winner, accompanied by the runner-up, visited Melbourne for a week's tour of selected industries .

WORKSHOPS, PORT AUGUSTA

Extension of the W orkshops at Port Augu sta is now essential to provide the necessary capacity to keep pace with maintenance requirement s. for the addition al diesel-electric locomotives and passenger and freight rollin gstock placed in service over the last decade to meet increased traffic dem ands.

It was accordingly decided to extend the m ain wo rkshop buildin g for a distance of approximately 150 feet. A contract has been arranged and the wo rk will be completed during 1964/65.

445 passenger and freight vehicles were repaired in the m ain wo rkshops and in order to relieve congestion there, use was again m ade of the roundhouse depot for the repair of goods rollingstock , and 2,387 vehicles received attention.

In addition to 3,174 wheels and journals, etc., turned during the year, 2,789 axles were handled through the Atlas Wheel Profile Truing Machine.

Welding of rails continued at the fiashbutt welding depot throughout the year. In addition , junction rails were manufactured at this depot. Arc welding of rails in situ was also performed, as in previous years.

STAFF

No difficulty was experienced in obtaining sufficient unskilled labour in the Mechanical Engineering Branch. Since last year's report , however, there has been no improvement in the position in the skilled grades, particularly in respect of me chanical and electrical fitter s. Notwithstanding that preference is now given to tradesmen in the allocation of

residential accommodation at Port Augusta, a total of 44 vacancies for skilled staff existed at the close of the year. It was accordingly necessary to work regular overtime in the Workshops in order to meet all requirements.

In the Locomotive Running Section, the staff position has been satisfac tory smce the appointment of additional trainee enginemen, but in the Trades Section, difficulty was experienced in securing the services of sufficient apprentices with the desired standard of

education.

Although the turnover of track maintenance staff , v1z. 2,898, was below that of the two previous years, at no time during the year was there sufficient labour offering to fill all vacancies. It became necessary, during the summer months, to reduce the strength of all maintenance and special gangs in order to m ake the best possible use of the m anpower available. Despite the fact that with regular Saturday overtime higher wages were available

to fettling staff, the turnover, as in other years, continued to be heavy.

The staff position on the North Australi a R ailway was reasonably satisfactory. At Canberra, however, the usual difficulty was experienced in obtaining suitable staff for the conduct of freight business.

STORES BRANCH

There has been a significant increase in the turnover of m aterial, and the record levels reached last year were exceeded. Total purchases rose by £619,102 to £2.981,804 and issues increased from £2,613,759 to £2,792,319. The principa l item s purchased were rails and sleepers required for relaying of the Trans-Australian R ailway and distillate for

locomotives. The total value of stock on hand increased by £189.485. chiefly due to increased holdings of permanent way materials.

The year was one of marked development and was characterised by a competitive buyer's market and general price stability . The only purchasing difficulty encountered was in respect of Australian produced mild steel.

The new store for inflammable fuels, lubricant s and greases came into operation during the year, and not only provides maximum security of stocks, but also enables the ever increasing supplies to be handled without additional labour that otherwise would have been necessary.

With the present heavy consumption of distillate , the bulk fuel install ation at Port Pirie Junction is now inadequate and arrangements are in hand to invite tenders for the construction of an additional tank.

Action was taken to clear all obsolete stock, and dispose of obsolete rollingstock , scrap materials, etc. Relaying of the Trans-Australian Railway is producing large quantities of surplus 80-lb. rails and fastenings , and sales have been arranged to both the South Australian and Western Australian Government Railways to assist in their standardisation

programmes.

Perpetual stocktaking was again conducted throughout the year, with satisfactory results, and reflected adequate control of stock and correct accounting.

There was a further increase in turnover in the Provision Stores Section. Due to difficulties experienced in recruiting suitable labour for branch stores , arrangements were made for all line orders on the Trans-Australian Railway to be assembled and despatched from Port Augusta. This has resulted in an improved service and surplus staff have been

transferred to the main Port Augusta store.

ROLLINGSTOCK

The passenger rollingstock mentioned in last year's report, viz. four second class two-berth compartment sleeping cars, one dining car and one lounge car, was received and placed in service. The ten brakevans referred to in that report were also delivered .

fhe Dining section of the new Dining Car. fhe music secti on of the Lounge Car.

19

Wi th the introduction of the additional second class two-berth compartment cars, this type of accom m odation ha now becom e standard for second class passengers travellin g over the Trans- ustralian Railway and the older four-berth compartment cars have been w ithdrawn from regular service.

In addition to rollingstock received, a first class lounge car which had been practically destroyed by fire was rebuilt in the Work shops at Port Augusta and returned to service.

1 t was decided to proceed with the purchase of five coach cars of a modern design, w hich should prove popular with the travellin g public, particu larly sporting bodies, special parties. etc.

A contract was let for the supply of further passenger rollingstock and brakevans, as under:

4' 8-f G auge:

One dining car One first class lounge car On e first class sleeping car Three second class sleeping cars One second class sleeping -lounge car

3' 6" Gauge:

One first class lounge car Three brakevans One Power van

Thirty-si x 55-ton capacity flat wagons ordered in 1962/63 were received during the year. In addition , orders were placed for the following special standard gauge freight rollin gstock:

Six 85-ft. sheep vans Six 85-ft. low-level motor vehicle earners Six 22,000-gallon rail tank cars.

Consideration is now being given to the construction of special 75-ft. covered vans and open gondola cars for the conveyance of both general loading and paper traffic.

DIESEL GAUGE

DIESEL-ELECTRIC LOCOMOTIVES

The 29 GM. locomotives operated a total of 3,434,127 miles and accumulated mileage to 30/6/64 was 25,895,490. The total mileage operated to 30/6/64 by GM.l , the first diesel-electric locomotive to enter service on the Commonwealth Railways, was 1,841,133.

For the year, the GM. locomotives averaged 322 miles per locomotive unit per day, compared with 334 miles per locomotive unit for the previous twelve months.

In order to cater for the steadily increasing traffic on the Trans-Australian Railway, an order has been placed for an additional five 4' 8-f gauge GM locomotives. Delivery of the first unit is expected in January, 1965.

"BUDD" DIESEL-HYDRAULIC RAIL CARS

As mentioned in last year's report, in the past it was necessary to withdraw the "Budd " rail cars from traffic from time to time in order to effect repairs resulting from collision s with livestock on the standard gauge section of the Central Australia Railway. Arrangements have since been made to discontinue running these cars as individual units on that service and to introduce a diesel-hauled train consistin g of air-conditioned coaches and a dining car, with a "Budd " car attached between Stirling N orth and Marree, which conveys passengers

to and from Port Augusta.

DIESEL TRACTION-31 6 11 GAUGE

DIESEL-ELECTRIC LOCOMOTIVES

The 12 NS U locomotives on the Central Australia R ailway ran 757.275 miles, compared with a mileage of 699,037 for the previous year.

Tenders were called for the purchase of addition al 3' 6" gauge diesel-electric locomotives to assist in meeting all locomotive power requirements on the Central Au stralia Railway and a contract was let for three of these units.

GENERAL

HOUSING ACCOMMODATION FOR EMPLOYEES

A m odern singlem en's barracks, which will house 36 employees, and 20 brick veneer hom es are at present in course of construction at .Port Augusta. The singlemen's quarter s and the new residences should assist this Department in obtaining and retaining the services

of urgently required tradesmen .

W ork also commenced on the erection of thirteen additional houses at various locations on the Central Au stralia R ailway.

OFFICE ACCOMMODATION

Tenders have been called for construction of a modern office block at Port Augusta to accommod ate the entire Way & Works professional and clerical staff . The new offices w ill be erected on a site adjoining the existin g railway station , and will release the present accommod ation in the station building for use by the Accounts & Audit and Transportation

Branches.

PASSENGER PLATFORM, PORT AUGUSTA

The northern end of the platform at Port Au gusta station w as extended by approxi " m ately 135 feet to overcome the difficulty previously experienced by passengers wishing to join or alight from that portion of a long train outside the end of the old platform.

ATOMIC ABSORPTION SPECTROSCOPE

During the year, an atomic absorption spectroscope designed by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation w as obtained for testing of lubricants in the Departmental Laboratory.

Atomic absorption is very attr active from the viewpoint of cost and speed, and its technique is simple and reliable . The technique has also been applied to metallurgical wo rk and its adoption for water anaylsis is being examined.

22

TELEPHONE EXCHANGE

A new P .A .B.X. type automatic telephone exchange came into operation at Port Augusta on 27/6/64, replacing the old exchange which had been in service over the past fifteen years. The new equipment offers the most up-to-date facilitie s and provides ultimate working for 400 extensions .

ELECTRICITY SUPPLY, PORT AUGUS TA

Negotiations were completed for the sale of this Department's residential electrical distribution system at Port Augusta to the Electric ity Trust of South Australia. The Electric ity Trust took over the supply of electricity to railway tenants as from I 17/64.

RAILWAY STANDARDISATION

During the year steady progress has been made with the planning and construction of the Kalgoorlie-Fremantle and the Broken Hill-Port Pirie standard gauge railways. The Department has been actively engaged in research investigations affecting both works and it appears probable that in 1968 a standard gauge railway will link the eastern and

western seaboards of the continent.

WES TERN AUSTRALIA

ln report for year ended 30/6/63 it was advised that the Western Australian Govern " ment Railways anticipated that contracts for earthworks in the Avon Valley would be completed by March, 1964. However, due almost entirely to the fact that the rock encountered in excavation was unstable in batters which might reasonably have been expected to be satisfactory for the type of country involved, delays have been occasioned and it is now anticipated that the contracts will be completed by January, 1965.

The delivery of the five standard gauge transfer locomotives commenced in July, 1964, and has been completed. Five brakevans and 45 ballast hoppers are under construction by private contractors , and the manufacture of 30 bolster wagons and 20 flat top wagons is being undertaken in the Midland Workshops. Specifications for various other types of

freight rollingstock have been prepared. Tenders have been invited for nine mainline diesel-electric locomotives and a specification prepared for shunting locomotives.

Various contracts have been let for permanent way materials and deliverie s satisfactory to project requirements have been maintained, and it is expected that tracklaying and ballasting will commence early in the new year. During the year a contract was negotiated by the Western Australian Government Railways for earthworks. bridging. culverts and fencing in the Northam-Merredin section.

A preliminary survey of the Avon Valley signal and communication route is being currently undertaken by the Postmaster -General's Department, while a contract for automatic signalling with centralised train control between Bellevue and We st Northam has been let by the Western Australian Government Railways.

23

Preparation of t ender documents for earthworks, bridges, culvert s and fencing in the M erredin-Koolyanobbing section, is progressing in a satisfactory manner, and in addition , it is propo ed that the follow ing tenders be invited prior to December, 1964:-(a) Buildings. Toodyay and Northam;

(b) Formation. We st Midland-Canning River;

(c) Formation, Canning River-Robb's Jetty and tracklaying Midland-Robb's Jetty;

(d) Formation and tracklaying Kewdale marshalling yard;

(e) Form ation, Robb 's Jetty-Fremantle;

(f) Signalling , East Northam-Merredin;

(g) V arious classes of rollingstock.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA

Tenders were invited by the South Australian Railways and contracts let for the following works required for the Broken Hill-Port Pirie standard gauge line:-(a) Earthworks between Mannahill and Cockburn;

(b) Construction of bridges between Manna hill and Cockburn;

(c) Installation of pipe culverts Outalpa to Cockburn;

(d) Stockpiling of Radium Hill ballast at Cutana.

The conversion to standard gauge of the Cutana-Radium Hill line and provision of narrow gauge ballast loading ramp at Cutana to enable the operation of a standard gauge ballast train from Radium Hill, is being undertaken by the South Australian Railways, who are also conducting a survey of a proposed alternative route, south of Silverton, from Cockburn to Broken Hill.

Rollingstock comprising 11 ballast hopp::!rs , I ballast plough, 2 goods brakevans, 7 flat wagons and I rail loading winch wagon for the project, is being manufactured at the Islington Workshops, and a contract has been awarded by the South Australian Railways for two mainline diesel-electric locomotives of 1800-2000 horsepower to be used initially for construction . and subsequently in normal operation .

GENERAL

In a Report on Standardisation of Australia 's Railway Gauges made in 1945 by Sir Harold Clapp, K.B.E., it is stated, inter alia, that "the diversity of gauges throughout Australi a has in no small measure contributed to the railway systems being a loose combination of independent units, each of which is controlled by a political group whose

ideas m ay or m ay not coincide with the best interests of the railways or of Australia as a whole. Politic al and sectional consider ation have denied the Railways effective control over their schedules of rates and fares, while their labour expenditures are largely outside their jurisdiction. To be fully effective in the national sense, unification of gauges must be accompanied by unific ation of railway thinkin g and planning, standardisation of equipment and introduction of modern methods of operation to the greatest extent practicable , with

the object of securing maximum efficiency and service. In my opinion, standardi sation without modernisation could not be justified ."

24

Such comment is as relevant today as when it w as written almo t twenty years ago and it is gratifying to report that a special conference of the Railways Comm issioners of the Commonwealth and the States of New South Wales. South Au stralia and Western Au stralia respectively took place in Sydney in May of this year to formulate preliminary plans for the movement of passengers and freight and general joint wo rking over the standard gauge east-west route. The design of rollingstock is now under way and w ill incorporate the most modern features to facilit ate efficiency and economi cal working. In addition to this meeting, approval has been given by the Commo nwea lth and six State R ailway administrations to support actively a national promotional campaign, under the

title of "Railways of Australia" to direct the attention of the public to the vital role in a developing economy carried out by the national railways. fnterest in railway actlVlties has been quickened in recent years by the completion of the Sydney-Melbourne standard gauge link, and the current standard gauge construction in South Australia and Western Australia. Such public awareness and interest will serve as a potent medium to promote passenger and freight business on an Australia-wide scale for the benefit of the travelling and trading public of all States of the Commonwealth.
