The first edition of this book appeared as a 272 page work three decades ago, its main aim being to provide a potted examination of the multiplicity of steam, diesel and electric locomotives that have graced this country from 1854. Since this first humble appearance, the book has grown in content, photography and style, and examining in some detail the massive technological changes that have swept onto the Australian locomotive scene. With an up-to-date map of the nations rail system and photographs provided by some of the nations more dedicated photographers, this book continues to provide a concise profile of the countrys diversified motive power in what is the largest railway book yet produced in this country.

Industry Reviews

"This is a monumental book about the locomotives of Australia from the earliest days to the present. Perhaps not a book to be read from cover to cover but one in which to dip as & when information is required. It is a reference book that is brimming with facts & figures but also information about where they operated or still operate plus minute details which often fascinate the railway historian. The book is laced with good quality photographs to emphasise various points and the selection stretches from the steam era to the multi-coloured diesel locomotives of today" - Brian Dotson The Journal of the Stephenson Locomotive Society
