This Was The Railway - Eric Marggraf

This Was The Railway - Eric Marggraf

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.

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....

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

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

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!
