This Was The Railway - Eric Marggraf (BOOK)

This Was The Railway - Eric Marggraf (BOOK)

This book is an exposé of the photographic output of Eric Marggraf; considered by many to be Queensland's best railway photographer. His innovative and unique approach wonderfully captures railways in Queensland during the 1960s. Of the images in this book, nearly three-quarters are scenes from branch lines that are now closed. Almost all of the rolling stock shown is long gone so it is indeed This Was The Railway.

LAST CHANCE TO BUY BEFORE THIS ITEM IS DISCONTINUED

Construction of a railway from Rockhampton to Longreach, between 1865 and 1892, was a prodigious undertaking of the last century. As the rails reached out year after year through heat and bitter cold, through dust and flood, built with sweat and strain and hand tools, the towns along its length were created and the surrounding districts opened up.

It was the start of the QR we have come to know today as a hauler of bulk commodities.

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....
