A Vintage Year For Steam


As part of the Bicentenary celebrations back in 1988 the Flying Scotsman was brought to Australia .

Combined with preserved working steam locomotives from Victoria, South Oz and NSW the public was faced with a stunning display of these majestic beauties that will probably never be repeated again.

Published in 1992, the fantastic photos almost speak for themselves despite the huge amount of reading material on every page.
The details and pictures make the reader yearn to see these wonderful machines in full flight again; this is a definite must-have book for any rail enthusiast.
