The Impact Of Rail

Stage 3

Students participate in a timeline ‘journey’, of those who lived and worked on the railways and the impact it had on the development of Bathurst as a city. This session explores the impact of rail and how people, discoveries and innovations have shaped the cultural landscape of early New South Wales.

Learn how the railway helped build a nation, how it revolutionised  lives, provided people with jobs, and provided the community with education through the Railway Institute and the Better Farming Train and transformed Western NSW with the transport of goods, stock and people.

This staff-led program uses collections of objects, images and stories to help students form connections between Humanities and Social Science, Technologies and Chemical and Earth Sciences.
