Climax – a loco resurrected – third edition
This second edition of this book was released in conjunction with the return to service on 8th September 2013 of ex-Tyers Valley Climax 1694, after a 12-year restoration/rebuild, at the Puffing Billy Workshops. This update, published in 2017, brings the story up to date, with photographs showing operations since 2013, and more details of the work done to the locomotive during the restoration.
39 photographs, 24 in colour and the rest duo-tone, and a
four-colour map of the Tyers Valley Tramway.
Published by the Puffing Billy Preservation Society.
The booklet includes a potted history of the locomotive, the Tyers Valley
Tramway on which it worked, illustrations of the loco in service
on the TVT and PBR, photographs of the Harman locomotive being
delivered from Port Melbourne, and photographs of a TVT TACL
tractor, with which the Climax worked.
Whilst the Harman photographs have been published before, they
have never been published with this degree of clarity!
