Tasmania's wild West Coast contained some of the most fascinating railways and tramways ever constructed in Australia. Built to tap the fabulous mineral wealth of mines such as Mount Bischoff and Mount Lyell, the remarkable engineering feats of these iron roads in the wilderness became the stuff of legend.
Through the intriguing memories of locomotive enginemen, track gangers, 'railway children' and adventurous travellers, Railways of Tasmania's Wild West tells the story of life in one of Australia's most enchanting regions. Hardbound with 160 full-colour pages, this unique publication is complimented by over 200 magnificent B&W and colour photographs - most never before published - and is an absolute must for anyone interested in Australian history.
