Look Out For Suburban Train - The Transition Years (BOOK)

The Brisbane suburban rail system in the 1950s and early 1960s was a far cry from the world class system of today. Electrification, although first proposed under a post-war rehabilitation plan drawn up in 1948 was still a long way off as the decade of the 1960s dawned.

Indeed it was not until november 1979 that the first electric services commenced from Roma St to Ferny Grove and Darra. 

This book captures some of the images of those times as Queensland Rail entered the transition years of the 1960s.
