Railways of the Otway Ranges
By Nick Anchen
Published by Sierra Publishing
96 pages, 173 x 245 mm, card cover, 126 photographs, many in colour.
Covers the scenic Wensleydale, Forrest, and Timboon broad-gauge branches, and the Colac-Beech Forest-Crowes narrow-gauge line with brief sections on the timber tramways in the Otways. It is in the same style as the author’s popular Railways of the Yarra Valley but with slightly more text content.
A wide range of photographs are included, including passenger and goods trains, steam and diesel locomotives, rail motors, stations, bridges, and scenery. Many of photographs have not been published before.
Photographs predominate, but the text and captions are informative and well done. A widely appealing book!
