Welcome to the Bus Shop:  recent acquisitions

Sydney's Electric Trains by Stephen Halgren and John Beckhaus

We have been very lucky to obtain a copy of this long out of print, highly sought-after work.  The price reflects its rarity and collector status.

The book is the definitive work on Sydney suburban and outer suburban electrics, up to date of publication, in 2007 by ARHS

192 pages, over 200 photos, all colour except historic B&W.  The photos throughout are of technical excellence making the book a work of art.

Size A4 landscape

The book is worth it just for the superb photo on the back cover, of a red rattler at speed, with the train in focus and the background blurred, the driver apparently perilously perched on the wooden stool with cab door wide open. It's summer, so why not? Ever heard of drivers falling out of their trains?

Near new condition. No damage . Dust cover has no tears or dents, but has slight 'foxing'.
