This program was filmed by Bernie Baker in 2002 whilst working at Tennant Creek and Katherine during construction of this historic project. See rail, sleeper and ballast trains, plus footage from the cab.

‘The Missing Link’ shows all classes of locomotives used during construction and display the now defunct Australian Northern logo. Watch as the grunt of 3300 turbo charged horses of  the ex-Western Australian L class and 2200 horsepower of the former New South Wales 422 class thrust their exhausts into the Northern Territory sky. Ride in the cab of locomotives as they lift 8000 tonne works trains and return with empty trains at 110 km/h.

Footage also includes a 500 class. Powered by a 500 hp English Electric engine, there was one of these little locomotives placed at both Tennant Creek and Katherine and these performed pivotal roles during the construction process.  There is no narration, scenes have comprehensive subtitles.
