This is a 32 page A4 publication to commemorate the centenary of the Powelltown Tramway, and released in conjunction with the Upper Yarra Valley Historical Society's celebrations on 17 November 2013. It was included as a members' supplement to Light Railways No.233, October 2013, and all financial members of the Society received a copy as part of their subscription.
The booklet was built around the original survey plans for the tramway, and is a stunning example of cartography. A series of double page spreads show course of the line from Yarra Junction through Powelltown and "The Bump" tunnel, and then up beyond New Ada as far as Starlings Gap.Alongside the maps are gradient profiles, and there are numerous photographs. While a number of the photos may be well known, their reproduction in this publication is excellent, better then ever seen before.
