Tall Timber and Tramlines Queensland (by John Kerr)  (BOOK)

Tall Timber and Tramlines Queensland (by John Kerr) (BOOK)

Written by John Kerr, This book describes all the Queensland timber tramways known to the author when the manuscript was released for publication in 2005. For climatic and other reasons Queensland had fewer timber tramways than most other Australian states. As a result it is possible in this book of 100 pages to mention all of those known to exist when the manuscript was prepared. All were closed by the end of the 1930s.
They ranged from the engagingly primitive to the well engineered Laheys' Canungra Tramway.

Tracks To Some Place - Volume 1

Tracks To Some Place - Volume 1

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.

Innisfail is 8O km south of Cairns, and the largest community between there and Townsville. It is an extremely scenic area situated in the lush coastal belt of tropical North Queensland in one of the wettest parts of Australia.
The 2 ft gauge Innisfail Tramway played a major role in the colourful history of the town.  Built one hundred years ago by the Geraldton Shire Council, it was subsequently taken over and operated by the Queensland Railways until they sold it to local sugar mills in 1977.

To the Setting Sun (BOOK)

To the Setting Sun (BOOK)

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.

Beaudesert Shire Tramway (BOOK)

Beaudesert Shire Tramway (BOOK)

The 3ft 6in gauge Beaudesert Shire Tramway was one of fifteen light railways built in Queensland by various Divisional Boards or their successors, the Shire Councils, and embraced three gauges: 3ft 6in, 2ft 6in and 2ft. These light railways were originally built to develop areas not served by rail, the finance for their construction being loan by the Government. All have now ceased to be owned by Shire Councils - some were closed, others were taken over by the Government and became part of the Queensland Railways system...
