Enginemen of the Victorian Railways Volume II provides a rare insight into life on the locomotive footplate, through the fascinating recollections of sixteen railwaymen, whose stories paint a picture of a once-proud network in all its glory, and recall the days when the Victorian Railways were integral to the fortunes of the state. This book covers a wide variety of VR history, including memories of the famous Spirit of Progress express train in the 1940s, quaint branch lines such as Noojee, Wonthaggi, Erica, Daylesford and Bolangum, along with the 'Pleurisy Plains' railway and rail motor operations. Hardbound with 190 full-colour pages, this unique publication is complimented by 152 magnificent photographs, most never before published, and is a must for anyone interested in the history of the Victorian Railways.
