Australian Trains - Southern Highlands Express

This series of photo essays features 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 tells the story of a bygone era of train travel in this country.

This is a 64-page booklet featuring many previously unpublished photographs.

For almost a century there has been a morning passenger train from Goulburn. It has provided the populace of the southern tablelands region of New South Wales with a means to travel to the city and return home the same day. For nearly 60 of those years, that train was known officially as the Southern Highlands Express. In this volume of Australian Trains we look at the history of this famous train and also its lesser-known, but equally important sister service, the Moss Vale passenger. Together, these two trains were the last steam-hauled services to traverse the main Southern line.

64 pages -  soft cover - over sixty illustrations, many in colour.
