Focus on … Victoria’s Narrow Gauge Gembrook Line – Part One

A Pictorial Tribute to the late Edward A. Downs, Railway Historian

Compiled by John Thompson
Published 2003 by Puffing Billy Preservation Society

48 pages A4 size landscape format, soft cover, 50 photographs most published for the first time.

Similar to Focus on … Victoria’s Narrow Gauge Walhalla Line and produced to the same high standard. Photographs taken from the mid-1930s  to the mid-1940s, few if any, have previously been published. They include many taken at Upper Ferntree Gully and Gembrook, bridges No.1 and No.4, the water tanks between Selby and Menzies Creek, passenger trains crossing at Belgrave, and shunting at Clematis and Cockatoo. Locomotives include 3A, 6A, 8A, 9A, and 12A, in some cases hauling very short mixed trains.

As with the other books in this series, the photographs are printed as duotones. They are sharp, well exposed, the composition is excellent, the detail is wonderful, and the captions are well written and informative.
