The Victorian Railways narrow gauge lines portrayed the very essence of the Australian pioneering spirit, with their ingeniously constructed routes traversing picturesque, forested and rugged country.
The Narrow Gauge tells the story of the Whitfield, Gembrook, Crowes and Walhalla railways, from construction right through to closure, and the eventual re-birth of the Puffing Billy and Walhalla Goldfields Railways.
The book includes a spectacular array of over 300 B&W and colour photographs, a full description of all narrow gauge locomotives and rolling stock, fascinating recollections by railwaymen and local residents, and a fully illustrated guide to the remains and relics.
Hardbound with 216 full colour pages, this magnificent publication is a fitting salute to a fascinating chapter in Victoria's history, and an absolute must for all railway enthusiasts and history buffs.
