Generally regarded as Australia's finest railway film and winner of many awards the world over, A Steam Train Passes is a nostalgic, imaginative essay on one of the majestic but now retired C38 class steam locomotives.

This fine locomotive has been restored at the Newcastle State Dockyard.

The documentary was filmed on one of its final journeys from Sydney to a series of country railway stations.
