Climax - a loco resurrected - third edition

 

This second edition of this book was released in conjunction with the return to service on 8th September 2013 of ex-Tyers Valley Climax 1694, after a 12-year restoration/rebuild, at the Puffing Billy Workshops. This update, published in 2017, brings the story up to date, with photographs showing operations since 2013, and more details of the work done to the locomotive during the restoration.

39 photographs, 24 in colour and the rest duo-tone, and a four-colour map of the Tyers Valley Tramway.

Published by the Puffing Billy Preservation Society.

The booklet includes a potted history of the locomotive, the Tyers Valley Tramway on which it worked, illustrations of the loco in service on the TVT and PBR, photographs of the Harman locomotive being delivered from Port Melbourne, and photographs of a TVT TACL tractor, with which the Climax worked. Whilst the Harman photographs have been published before, they have never been published with this degree of clarity!

Price $10.00 ($9.00 to LRRSA members). Weight 160 gm
