Queensland Canefields Steam Era (BOOK)

Queensland Canefields Steam Era (BOOK)

An exceptional presentation of images of locomotives and the conditions in which they worked in the Sugar cane industry of Queensland. 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 origina1 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.

Services were provided by steam hauled passenger trains and an exciting variety of red rail motors. Large format colour photographs tell their own story. Information was supplied from records and consultations with various photographers.

The Aramac Tramway (BOOK)

The Aramac Tramway (BOOK)

This is the story of the Aramac Tramway, 41 miles of lightly built 3 ft 6 in gauge track, with little traffic. It opened in 1913, and for the next 62 years it provided a major challenge for the Shire Council to keep it going. Miraculously it survived until 1975. By that time all of its traffic could be easily handled by road.
