Lonely Rails in the Gulf Country (Book)

Lonely Rails in the Gulf Country (Book)

The Normanton to Croydon line was originally to go from Normanton to the Cloncurry copper field, but was diverted east after the Croydon goldfield boomed. During the brief heyday of Croydon, this railway, then with several locomotives and carriages and a fleet of wagons, was its lifeline. None of several schemes to extend it, especially to a better port, came to fruition....

In this THIRD EDITION, the history has been brought up to date, some corrections and additions made, and new illustrations added. The corrections cover how the steel sleepers were packed, where steel and timber sleepers were laid originally, the delay in constructing sections 2 and 3, the original location of Haydon, the camping quarters at Blackbull, and the altitudes en route.

Recalling QR in the 60s (BOOK)

Recalling QR in the 60s (BOOK)

For Queensland Railways (QR) the 1960s was the decade in which diesel locomotives displaced steam locomotives. It was also the decade when many branch lines were closed and QR started to focus on what it believed it should be doing. It was the start of the QR we have come to know today as a hauler of bulk commodities.

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.

Railways of Caboolture, Woodford and Kilcoy (BOOK)

Railways of Caboolture, Woodford and Kilcoy (BOOK)

2009 was the centenary of the opening of the railway branch line from Caboolture to Woodford which connected Woodford to the rail network of the state and, doubtless, brought the state capital much nearer. It would have made living and working in the district less remote from the facilities of both Caboolture and the capital city and brought Brisbane within a few hours of Woodford rather than a days' horse ride. The railway was extended to Kilcoy four years later. For just over 50 years the line served most of the transport needs of the area but by 1964 many rural railways were being closed or neglected and had services withdrawn. The line was closed beyond Wamuran in 1964 and services were suspended from Caboolture in September 1996. Today it is doubtful if locals ever give a thought to the railway that was a vital link in the lives of those living along it in the previous century.
