|Indian in Australia|
One of the main and really attracting factors for many people who will travel to Australia in 2017 is the chance to ride the Indian Pacific Railroad, really amazing. The name comes from the fact that it makes every trip right across the continent from the very Indian Ocean to the Pacific. It can be said in fact to be one of the very few true transcontinental railroads in the world, most others stop short of going to whole distance. The result is that the route has become very popular with tourists who want to see a part of the country that few people travel to.
Showing how very little people actually travel by passenger train these days you would possibly expect that the Indian Pacific is just the very last of an older service; this is in fact not the case. According to record, the line did not exist before 1970 because of the odd history of Australian railroads. Up until then there was no transcontinental route so if you wanted to get from one side of the country to the other it required several changes of train. Many Indians Businesses in Sydney as been made much easier and faster by this trains the news about recent developments is always found in the Indians magazines of Australia.
One reason that there was no transcontinental route for much of Australia's history is that in the early recent days of trains each of the states set its own regulations. The result was that different gauges were used in each state which meant that trains could not travel across state borders. This seriously reduced the development of railroads in Australia. It was not until 1970 that the government finally got around to correcting the problem by introducing a standard gauge for the whole country.
These days the Indians in Australia always uses the great trains to see the interior of the country very interesting. And the reason is that more than ninety percent of the population of Australia lives along the coast which means that very little people travel to the interior. But the main reason for that is the fact that few Indians travel across the interior and it happens to be very hot and very barren; the train removes most of the discomfort.
There are quite a few special features of the Indian Pacific that make it popular for this 2017 with all train buffs. Besides being one of the longest and strongest train routes in the world and one of the few truly transcontinental ones it is also the straightest. Because the interior of the country is very flat and so barren the track could be built in basically a very straight line for much of its route. At a point as it enters Western Australia it runs dead straight for just under three hundred miles. No other railroad comes anywhere close to having a straight stretch that long.
