Author: James Bentley  Illustrations: Phil Belbin

 

The first part of this book is a photographic record of a period when steam was king and the building of the Zig Zag Railway at Lithgow was the greatest engineering project undertaken in Australia.

 

The second part of the book deals with the formation of the tourist railway and the reappearance of steam trains on the Zig Zag.

 

A book that captures the magic of steam and stirs the imagination.
