Note about book orders
Published in Australia, but shipping by way of a bookstore in the UK, comes this book:
The book may have more miles than some of the locomotives.
Author Leon Oberg scribed it, and Rosenburg Publishing (NSW) put it out in 2007.
I bought the book as a reference for Tasmanian railroads, which is maybe as obscure as you can get. Rail operations in that state are in 1067 mm (3′ 6″) gauge. There are some interesting modeling possibilities there.
The book itself covers Australian motive power through 2007. If there is a locomotive not covered, I am not expert enough to know. The locomotives are presented by year, but there are indices to find specific locomotives or railroads. Photos and specs, but no drawings. The book is interesting in itself, but enough information on Tasmanian locomotives to justify the purchase.
