The majestic mountain ranges east of Melbourne contained some of the finest stands of hardwood trees in Australia. To access the timber, a fascinating network of railways and tramways were built.
This publication tells the story of the Warburton, Powelltown and Noojee railways, along with the prominent timber tramways of the region, from an era when the tall timber was extracted by steam and sweat.
The fascinating memoirs of legendary railwaymen and timber workers are complemented by 260 magnificent photographs - many never before seen.
264 page limited edition hard cover. Printed on heavy art paper with spot varnish finish on all 260 photographic images. 296 mm x 242 mm landscape.
