The Ghan's 80th birthday

The Ghan has been servicing Adelaide to Alice Springs for 80 years. In 2004 we saw its extension to Darwin.

This morning, courtesy of local radio station Five AA, we partook in a tasty breakfast and then had a guided tour of the train.

This is one of the cabins in a Gold Service carriage. Each cabin has its own ensuite bathroom.

By night the cabin offers comfortable sleeping accomodation.

I will be posting more photos of the Ghan over the next few days. Also for more of The Ghan, see one of my previous posts here.

It looked so interesting. Happy Birthday to Ghan. I hope Ghan will continue running for more years to come. Oh I love to be able to stretch and sleep in the train.
