A Day in the Life of G42

Mixed Train to Erica – Thursday 18th March 1954

Photographs by Edward A. Downs

Compiled by John Thompson

Published 2001 by Puffing Billy Preservation Society

48 pages A4 size landscape format, soft cover, many duotone photographs published for the first time.

A Day in the Life of G42 is a high quality production featuring a series of magnificent photographs taken by the late Edward A. Downs (author of Speed Limit 20) on the occasion of his journey behind G42 on the weekly “Erica Mixed” on 18 March 1954, only a few weeks before the final closure of the Moe-Erica-Walhalla narrow-gauge line.

Introductory pages include background information about Ted Downs himself, the Victorian narrow-gauge branch lines, the Moe – Walhalla line, and beyer-garratt locomotive G42.

The photographs are reproduced as high-resolution duotones on art paper, with comprehensive text captions to each photograph. It is believed none of the photographs have been published before.
