The South Coast Railway (BOOK)

The South Coast Railway (BOOK)

The South Coast railway was unique: No other railway in Queensland, originally built mainly for goods transport, ever carried such unprecedented passenger numbers.

Surely no other railway anywhere with such huge potential for the future has ever been closed so prematurely. Surely, few rail closures anywhere else ever aroused such public indignation. Yet few people living on the Gold Coast today would even realise that long ago, steam trains and the crowds of people they transported formed an integral part of the Gold Coast scene for over 75 years....

Vantage Point Queensland - Ted Payne (BOOK)

Vantage Point Queensland - Ted Payne (BOOK)

This photograph book represents Qucensland railways as they were in that earlier more leisurely era. Captions are kept to a minimum, allowing the large format colour reproductions to tell their own story. Little information was supplied with many of the original 35mm slides, but with the help of some of our own records and consultations with various photographers we have been able to provide reasonably detailed and, hopefully, accurate captions.

Turning a dream into a reality - The Story Of The Great South Pacific Express (BOOK)

Turning a dream into a reality - The Story Of The Great South Pacific Express (BOOK)

In the early 1990s, the biggest structural upheaval in Queensland's railway history was to spawn a project so breathtaking in ambition and imaginative scope that those who witnessed its birth, growth and completion would look back on it in wonder as a near miracle of design engineering and construction. This is the story of a special train — the Great South Pacific Express and of the people who built it. It is dedicated to those who created and shared the vision ol building one of the worlds most luxurious passenger trains, to the designers and engineers who turned that vision into a workable reality and, above all, to the workers of Queensland Rail's Townsville Workshops who took on the most formidable challenge of their working lives and emerged, triumphant, with a masterpiece that will remain a testimony to their dedication... the best train in the world!

Tracks To Some Place - Volume 2 (BOOK)

Tracks To Some Place - Volume 2 (BOOK)

Tracks to Some Place’ was born out of several different facets that merged to create the book as it is now. My family has a working involvement with the railway network in Queensland stretching back to the 1970’s, and as such we have accumulated a reasonable assortment of photographs (mostly older print type images) of various aspects of railway operations and equipment. In the last few years these have come into my possession and rather than let them gather dust in a forgotten album, I toyed with the idea of getting them out there somehow.
