The Bridal Train


At the end of World War II wives and fiancées of US servicemen were collected on special bridal trains from all over Australia to be shipped to America to be reunited with their partners. This play deals with two of these girls at a regional railway station where they meet two injured soldiers travelling on the same train. The story is told through the eyes of two teenage US backpackers who are grand daughters of the women at the station.
