Australian Trains - Newcastle Express

The first title in a series of photo essays which feature the history of some of Australia's iconic trains in an easy-to-read A5 format. Featuring colour and black and white photos, the series will tell the story of a bygone era of train travel.

The first book in the series is NEWCASTLE EXPRESS by Peter Attenborough which is a 64-page booklet featuring many previously unpublished photographs. Peter gives a brief history of the line and tells of the first express services to the second largest city in New South Wales. Timetable information is also provided. Peter examines the individual eras of the Newcastle Express steam, diesel and electric, and details of the locomotive classes used on the train are included. Rostering of the 38 class in the 1960s and the types of rollingstock used are also covered. A range of pictures taken along the line enhance this publication.
