Glasfurd & Walker: The Silver Star

The Silver Star is a unique story about a iconic railway car’s journey from the American midwest to the remote Pilbara region of West Australia.

Glasfurd & Walker designed a bound publication documenting the history of the Silver Star railway car as part the renowned Zephyr line in the 40’s and 50’s in America before being brought over to Australia in the later 60’s, and finally it’s near miss with decommissioning before being transported to the Pilbara Region in West Australia.

The Silver Star’s final incarnation is as a completely refit cafe situated in the heart of Port Hedland.

Along with designing the invitation for the grand opening of the new Silver Star, Glasfurd & Walker also designed the identity and stationery for the cafe itself.
