Super Power on the VR - Victorian Railways 4-6-2 S Class Pacific Express Passenger Locomotive - Part One
Badaway, Emile & Sargent, John & Berry, John & Pantlin, Graeme & Dunn, Philip      
ISBN: 1876249943
Train Hobby Publications Australia Studfield, Victoria, Australia 2006 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 48 pages profusely illustrated b&w photos - The S class was an express passenger steam locomotive that ran on Victorian Railways from 1928 to 1954. Built when the VR was at its zenith and assigned to haul premier interstate express passenger services, the S class remained the VR's most prestigious locomotive class until the advent of diesel electric locomotives in the early 1950s. The S was VR's first three cylinder locomotive, and A E Smith's design was influenced by Nigel Gresley's GNR A1 class 4-6-2 with its Gresley-Holcroft derived motion. The S class also showed American design influence in its use of a delta trailing truck and bar frames rather than plate frames. Another notable design innovation was the incorporation of all three cylinders and the smokebox saddle into a single casting. The S class spent its entire normal service life on the main North-eastern line, its axle load too high for regular service on any other VR lines. Although Annual Reports show the VR planned to upgrade the main Western line and build further S class locomotives to haul Overland services between Ararat and Serviceton, exigencies imposed by the Great Depression and World War II meant the planned upgrade of this service never eventuated. Although a numerically small class limited to a single line, the S class was highly utilised. S 302 travelled 1,446,468 miles (2,327,367 km) over its 25 year, 2 month service life, averaging 4,773 miles (7,679 km) per month   As New/No Jacket

Shale & Shays: The Fight for Shale Oil from the Wolgan Valley
Longdon, Mark      
Eveleigh Press Matraville, NSW Australia 2017 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 300 Pages with Black & White Photos and Drawings. Mark Langdon, an upper Blue Mountains resident and trained historian, presents a fresh look at the exhilarating shale-oil mining days of 1906 – 1932 in the Wolgan Valley in New South Wales. Researched from existing company and government documentation and newspaper reports of the day, the book begins with the story of the Commonwealth Oil Corporation’s (C.O.C.) inception, financed and run from the London offices, continues through the building of the works at Newnes and the railway to Newnes Junction, and rounds out with the final days in the 1930s, when the fate of Newnes resided in the hands of the Commonwealth Government and National Oil Pty Ltd. The work includes the decline of the C.O.C. and John Fell’s becoming the owner. The problems faced are covered in detail, as is the lives of the miners and residents living in the valley. Special attention has been given to the railway – locomotives and rolling stock – including exhaustive research detailing the building and use of the railway that carried the precious shale and oil to the main N.S.W.G.R. Western Line at Newnes Junction and then on to Torbane in the west and to the Sydney export seaboard. Each vehicle type built specifically for and purchased by the C.O.C. is covered, with a history and photos and a scale drawing of each vehicle type included. The work is rounded out with superb maps and a Phil Belbin painting.  New/New

The Campbeltown & Machrihanish Light Railway
MacMillan, Nigel S. C.      
ISBN: 1871980178
Plateway Press Norwich, Norfolk, England 1993 Edition: Reprint  Hard Cover 112 pages b/w photos - The Campbeltown and Machrihanish Light Railway was a 2 ft 3 in (686 mm) narrow gauge railway in Kintyre, Scotland, between the towns of Campbeltown and Machrihanish. Because the C&MLR provided a shortcut through a narrow neck of land, it can be classed as a portage railway. Only three other passenger-carrying lines in the UK operated on the same gauge, all of them in Wales - the Corris Railway, the short - lived Plynlimon and Hafan Tramway and the Talyllyn Railway.   Very Good/Very Good

Country Railway Routes: The East Kent Light Railway
Mitchell, Vic & Smith, Keith      
ISBN: 0906520614
Middleton Press Midhurst, West Sussex, UK 1989 Edition: First Edition  Laminated Pictorial Boards 96 Pages with Black/White Photos and Maps. Inscription on Inside Front Cover. One of the most curious railways in Britain, the East Kent was not planned as a passenger line but was intended mainly as a carrier of coal to the coast for shipping. It passed through a tunnel associated with a skull (Golgotha), had stations commemorating murder (Poison Cross) and unproductive collieries (several). Its mysterious rolling stock and bizarre termini have made it a transport legend, which can be explored through the photographs, maps and amazingly varied tickets contained in this album.  Very Good/No Jacket
