In the wake of their well-received 2014 book Northern Exposures, which sold out in just over six months, the Cadeco crew has come out of hibernation and produced what seems likely to be the second in a three-part series on regular service steam railway operations in New South Wales. This new title, Lenses South, features action in the Sydney metropolitan area and on selected main and branch lines to the south of the state capital. Vain people that they are, the authors believe some of the photographic coverage in the book's Short South chapter is about as good as it gets for 1960s Australia. You be the judge! With single and double headers, tiny tank engines, Ten Wheelers, Pacifics, Garratts and more, there are landform, light effects and locomotive variety to whet discerning appetites. Personal reminiscences intersperse the avalanche of images. This book is bristling with sparkling colour images taken in a truly creative style.
For the devotee of history:
• Marvel at shots of the mighty 57s south of Goulburn
• View speedy 38s on the Riverina Express to Albury
• Double-headed 36s and many other combinations.
• Canberra, Crookwell, Richmond, Temora and the Sydney Metropolitan Region.
This is a limited print run and will sell out. It is a must for every NSW railfan’s collection
