Saving Puffing Billy

The first decade 1955-1965

Edited by David Burke OAM

Published by Puffing Billy Preservation Society

Hard cover, 200+ pages, 220 mm x 268 mm, 300+ photographs, mostly in colour

This book is a fascinating story of public sentiment for the narrow gauge railway to Gembrook giving rise to the formation of the Puffing Billy Preservation Society in 1955, and the saga of rescuing the line from imminent scrapping; the restoration phase; the reopenings to Menzies Creek in 1962 and to Emerald in 1965 - all within the Society's first decade, 1955-1965.

The book is based on extensive research and writing by PBPS member Bill Russell, enhanced by numerous interviews with a representative number of long-standing Society members.
