Locomotives of Australia

1850s to 2010 (Fifth Edition)

By Leon Oberg

This book examines the steam, diesel, and electric locomotives that have powered Australia since 1854. Revised and enlarged, the fifth edition - written by photojournalist and former newspaper editor Leon Oberg - examines the prevailing social fabric of Australia's various railway administrative bodies and the ever expanding transport needs of towns, industry, and mining. With fantastic photographs and detailed technical information, the book brings up-to-date a host of existing entries, and it includes several locomotive types that have appeared since 2006.
