Running Out of Steam & Catching Up with Diesels
Burke, David      
ISBN: 9780648043928
Rosenberg Publishing NSW, Australia 2017 Edition: First Edition  Soft Cover 194 Pages of Colour Pictures. Across Australia, one hundred thousand men and women were 'in the railways'. From power houses to poultry farms, laundries to loco sheds, wheelbarrows to workshops, snow resorts to signal boxes, the railway had it all. From lumps of iron, men hammered out a mighty locomotive. Skilled craftsmen shaped first class carriages for the rich. Day and night, from Katoomba to Kalgoorlie, Mount Gambier to Mount Isa, the rhythm of rolling wheel on silvery rail was never silent. For much of this time, steam was the inseparable of Australia's railways on the move. By the turn of the century the railway scene had utterly changed. Steam, mostly, was but a fond memory. New motive power had taken command of the tracks and trains. For Australia's railways the diesel-electric locomotive was the key to survival - and the future. Author Melbourne-born David Burke began his newspaper career on the Herald-Sun later moving to the Sydney Morning Herald and its associated publications. He has written 30 books covering fact and fiction, some relating to railways (where he once worked). 30 Days on Australia's Railways was his previous railway book published in 2014 by Rosenberg. His adventure novel set on Victoria's narrow gauge Puffing Billy was made by the ABC into a seven episode TV serial and Come Midnight Monday enjoyed international release.  New/No Jacket

Victorian Railways D3 Class 4-6-0 Locomotive : A Photographic Profile
Crow, Lindsay & McLean, Don      
ISBN: 9781921122354
Train Hobby Publications Australia Pinewood Victoria Australia 2011 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 56 pages profusely illustrated colour photos - The D3 class started out life as the DD class, 261 of which were built from 1902 to 1921. The original saturated design was found to have some shortcomings, so commencing in 1914, various members of the class were converted to superheated design. In 1929, renumbering and reclassification took place, with the saturated locos being known as the D1 class, and the superheated locos the D2 class. Further alterations in 1929 took place, with 94 of the D2 class being further rebuilt with larger boilers, and these became the D3 class. They were remarkably versatile locos, being used not only for shunting and light branch line work, but also for the occasional rostered main duty as well. They were capable of hard work, and speeds up to 80mph, and were quite popular with crews. Loco DD980 was chosen to become the Commissioner's Loco, used for inspection touring of the Victorian rail network by the Railways Commissioner from 1916 onwards. This loco was rebuilt and renumbered to D3-639 in 1929, and was scrapped in 1958. However, the concept was too popular to be scrapped, and sister loco 658 was restored and renumbered as the second D3-639 in the early 60s, and today, this loco is retained for preservation running.  As New/No Jacket

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

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

Railway Moods: The Ffestiniog Railway
Thomas, Cliff      
ISBN: 9781841146003
Halsgrove Somerset, UK 2007 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 144 Pages with Colour Photos. The 1ft 111/2ins gauge Ffestiniog Railway is a line of immense historic significance. Originally built to transport slate from the quarries around Blaenau Ffestiniog to the harbour at Porthmadog it was both hugely successful and renowned worldwide for innovation. By 1950, however, it was a scene of dereliction – until enthusiasts gained control. Today it is a major tourist attraction and most would agree is the leading preserved narrow gauge railway in Britain – while continuing with its record of innovation including the construction of new locomotives. The Ffestiniog Railway holds major gala events and is visited by many locomotives from other railways. All of this variety and colour is captured within the pages of this magnificent book, continuing over 140 full-colour images. Not the least of its glories is the peerless landscape through which the route runs, from the top of a mile-long sea wall, through the hills of Snowdonia and skirting the rooftops of houses as it approaches the slate town of Blaenau. This is contrasted with glimpses behind the scenes in the line’s workshops. The Ffestiniog Railway is now in the midst of a task arguably more massive than its own revival as it leads the reconstruction of a long-defunct neighbour, the Welsh Highland Railway. A section of the book examines this huge project, bringing the Ffestiniog Railway story bang-up-to-date. Cliff Thomas worked for several years as Heritage Railways’ News Editor for the former magazine Railway World, and in early 2001 he joined the team of contributors to The Railway Magazine for which he reports on standard and narrow gauge steam news and is a feature writer. He has also written on the current narrow gauge scene for Narrow Gauge World since issue 1 of that title and is the editor of the NGmodelling section of that title. His photographic and written work has also appeared on a freelance basis in a wide range of other magazines and publications. Cliff has been an Executive Committee member and Director of the Leighton Buzzard Narrow Gauge Railway for many years and is the founding Chairman of the Greensand Railway Museum Trust   Good/Good

Railway Moods: The Welshpool & Llanfair Railway
Heath, Mike      
ISBN: 9781841145327
Halsgrove Tiverton, Devon, United Kingdom 2006 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 144 Pages with Colour Pages. Opened in 1903 the introduction of a light narrow gauge railway connecting the town of Llanfair Caereinion with the main Cambrian Railway's network at Welshpool brought about a major change for life in the surrounding countryside. Local industry and farming was transformed as a result of this much quicker, and more economic, method of exporting produce and importing necessary supplies. Passenger traffic was never particularly heavy and that service ceased in 1931. Goods traffic struggled on benefiting from a mini revival during the Second World War, surviving until competition from the improving road system brought about cessation of all services in 1956. That would have been the end of the story but for a band of local people who had fallen in love with the line and were determined to save it. Starting with very limited resources they set about the restoration of the line and the superb events that were held to celebrate the railway's centenary in 2003 bear testament to the tremendous success that has been achieved. For nearly ten years Mike Heath has been visiting the line and the beautifully landscaped mid-Wales countryside through which it passes, attending many of the special events held there, throughout all seasons day and night. In his latest photographic journey he has sought to show why this line, which is often missed by travellers heading for more well known destinations, is well worthy of a day out all to itself! With 140 photographs in full colour, this book is a fitting celebration of this wonderful line in a glorious landscape.  Very Good/Good

Sligo Leitrim & Northern Counties Railway - an Irish Railway Pictorial
Sprinks, Neil      
ISBN: 1857801121
Midland Publishing Ltd Hinckley, Leics, England 2001 Edition: First Edition  Soft Cover 80 pages profusely illustrated b/w photos - The SLNCR was a remarkable concern in many ways. The last standard gauge railway in these islands to retain its independence, latterly all its locomotives, which only ever had names - they were never given numbers, were of the unusual 0-6-4 tank type, and all were built by Beyer Peacock in Manchester. It was also a diesel pioneer, railbuses and a railcar operated most of the passenger service from the 1930s onwards. The line's single track connected Sligo, on the west coast, to Enniskillen. Never prosperous, the SLNCR relied heavily on its powerful neighbour, the Great Northern, which it joined at Enniskillen, as an outlet for its traffic, of which livestock was a major component. Ironically, it was the demise of these GNR lines, which precipitated the closure of the SLNCR in 1957. The book takes a gentle photographic ramble along the course of the line, lingering at the wayside stations. Many aspects of the system are explored including its locomotives, passenger and goods stock, signalling and the company's bus services. Examples of timetables, tickets and other SLNCR ephemera are also recorded. The memory of this delightful, singular, quirky, this somehow quintessentially Irish railway system, is beautifully evoked in the book's superb collection of photographs, which mostly date from the last 20 years of the line's existence. The sixth title in Midland's successful and acclaimed Irish Railway Pictorial series; Covers a line which is known to many but on which Iittle has been published over the years; The photographs and station plans will be be of interest to modellers looking for interesting and unusual prototypes; The same excellent review coverage, which the other titles in the series have received, is anticipated on publication; The book will receive strong local promotion in the counties in Ireland once served by the railway  Very Good/No Jacket

Railways of the Eyre Peninsula : A Photographic Profile
Hennell, Andrew & Hennell, David      
ISBN: 9781921122477
Train Hobby Publications Australia Pinewood Victoria Australia 2013 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 56 pages profusely illustrated colour photos - The Eyre Peninsula Railway is a 1,067 mm (3 ft 6 in) railway on the Eyre Peninsula of South Australia. The system is isolated from the rest of the South Australian railway network. The network consists of about 600km of route and carries mainly wheat and gypsum. The railway is separated from the main system, and there has never been any justification for a connection to the main system. With the prospective development of iron ore traffic, a new port at Sheep Hill north of Tumby Bay has been mooted. This would require a 27km branchline from Ungarra and upgrading of the remaining track.  As New/No Jacket

Queensland Canefields Steam Era 1955 - 1980
Sargent, John & Crow, Lindsay      
ISBN: 1876249196
Train Hobby Publications Australia Studfield, Victoria, Australia 1999 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 48 pages profusely illustrated colour photos - Queensland Canefields Steam Era is a special profile covering this unique railway and it's extensive sugar cane networks. Approximately 34 mills of the Australian Sugar Industry, dotted the coast from northern N.S.W. to far north Queensland, operated some 200 steam locomotives on over 200km of tramways, mostly 2' (60.9cm) gauge, the remainder being 3'6" (106.7cm) gauge. In the mid 1950s diesels began making inroads amongst the steam fleet, gradually ousting them, until their final appearance in the late 70s at Qunaba Mill near Bundaberg. One Perry 0-6-2T lasted at the Marian Mill as a yard shunter until late 1982. As with the current diesel locos, these steam locos worked daily shifts during the cane harvest, sometimes up to 36km from the mill and not always through Canefields but often through natural bushland as they travelled from one canefield to the next. During the non-harvest months the locos were serviced, repaired and stored. the fascinating and colourful little steam locos have gone but the tramways have expanded and their operations modernised; even the earlier 'rod' diesels are now being superseded by bigger, more powerful bogie locomotives. Many of the old steam locos still exist in varying states of repair. Some ended up in coastal parks and literally rusted away. Fortunately many have been saved and preserved by individuals, groups and societies throughout Australia, a number are in working order.   As New/No Jacket

Shooting the West: The Last Years of Steam in the West of New South Wales
Holdsworth, Malcolm      
ISBN: 9780994559005
Cadeco Hyde Park SA Australia 2017 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 156 Pages of Colour Photos. Following the publication of our acclaimed volumes Northern Exposures and Lenses South, there was one more division. The West! While the south survived with steam until 1969 and the north eventually lost its steam in 1973, the West main line was effectively finished by July 1967. As producers of the first two books, we had to look far and wide to get the coverage we wanted for the Western Division. Fortunately, due to the quality of our work, the community responded and we have produced what we expect will be a landmark publication celebrating steam West of Sydney. At 156 pages it is the same size as Northern Exposures, and incorporates the lessons we learned and the feedback we received from the first two volumes. In other words, we believe you will be proud to have it as part of your collection. The West was different. The lines meandered over hills and around sharp curves. For the most part 30T’s, and 32’s were’used on the many branch lines, and standard goods abounded, slowly hauling heavy freight up and down the steep grades. The heavy Mail trains and Express passengers rarely travelled above 60 mph, except for the section just before Orange. They tended to stop a lot more than on the other divisions, with much of the track single line, and antiquated signalling. It did mean 36’s hauled many of these until the end, and quite often double headers were required to mount Tumulla and Raglan banks. The new book in the series includes detailed locomotive allotments for the various depots, some great stories of riding and chasing trains in the division, plenty of historical data, and, of course, superb colour photos to back it all up. As with the other volumes, no expense has been spared to ensure the photos are reproduced to the highest standard.   New/New

Under the Wires - New South Wales 45 & 46 Class Electrics - Part Three
Sargent, John & Pantlin, Graeme      
ISBN: 1876249935
Train Hobby Publications Australia Studfield, Victoria, Australia 2007 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 56 pages profusely illustrated colour photos - The New South Wales 45 class was a class of mainline electric locomotive introduced on to the NSW rail system in 1952 by the New South Wales Government Railways. With only a single locomotive in the class, it was later renumbered as the 71 class and the number group was reused for a class of diesel-electric locomotives in 1962. The New South Wales 46 class are a class of mainline electric locomotive introduced onto the NSW rail system from 1956 under New South Wales Government Railways. Metropolitan-Vickers and its partner Beyer, Peacock and Company obtained the contract to build 40 of these locomotives.The locomotives were built at Bowesfield Works, Stockton-on-Tees, England, with electrical equipment supplied by Metropolitan-Vickers from its Trafford Park and Sheffield plants. Metropolitan-Vickers drew on experience gained from its earlier class EM1 and EM2 electric locomotives, which were used on the Woodhead Line in the UK and in The Netherlands. These electric locomotives were originally purchased as part of the Blue Mountains electrification works, and spent their life hauling coal, freight and passenger carriages under the wires. The 46 class locomotives were often seen double or triple heading coal and freight services. The class 46 was the most powerful locomotive in Australia for many years, with a one hour rating of 3 780 hp and ability to deliver more than that for short periods. They proved to be very reliable and were generally considered superior to the much newer and even more powerful Comeng-Mitsubishi class 85 and 86 locomotives. Their build quality and durability was such that 38 of the original 40 remained on the books in 1990. The class 46 locomotives were involved in a number of serious incidents. On 16 July 1965, a 44-vehicle goods train hauled by 4620 ran away for 4 miles, careering downhill at speeds of up to 95 miles per hour, before a spectacular derailment at Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains. Investigations revealed that whilst the air brake train pipe was connected from the locomotive to the train, the associated isolating cock was left closed. This rendered the train brakes inoperative. On 16 January 1976, a goods train hauled by 4623 collided with the rear of a stationary double deck interurban electric multiple unit (EMU) train at Glenbrook, NSW, killing one passenger in the rear car of the EMU. This accident was caused by a wrong-side signal failure. The automatic signal in rear of the EMU exhibited "caution" when it should have been at "danger", thereby admitting the following goods train into the occupied signal section. Incidents like this were occurring with alarming frequency in New South Wales in the 1970s, until the Granville railway disaster of 1977, which claimed 83 lives. Locomotive 4620 did not survive this incident in service, being the first class 46 to succumb to withdrawal.   As New/No Jacket
