John Beckhaus and Ross Willson describe the construction of the line, the locomotives and rolling stock procured for its operation and the train operations up to 1920.
Part 2 of David Matheson’s account of the evolution ‘From Steam to Diesel and Electric’ locomotives provides an in-depth account of the transformation that occurred on the Tasmanian, South Australian, Commonwealth and New South Wales Railways between 1955 and 1974. It is illustrated with photographs form the ARHSnsw Railway Resource Centre archives.

   Highly recommended Ozzie Railway History Mag Reviewed Thursday, November 22, 2018
Anyone interested in Australian Railway history, this is a well produced, and high quality mag. My great grandfather helped built many of these railways in late 19C.
