Subtitled "A Photographic Biography", this book features stories from nine Tasmanian enginemen who worked all manner of trains throughout the state from the 1940s to the 1980s. Stories cover Hobart suburbans, FIngal coal trains, the Tasman Limited, the Garratts of the Emu Bay Railway and the Mount Lyell Rack. Most of the fine photographs are previously unpublished, and although more than half of the book covers the Tasmanian Government Railways, the 3'6" gauge state carrier, the quirkiness of the TGR fits the remit of the LRRSA, and of course the Emu Bay and the Mt Lyell are very much part of our core interest.
