STANDARD LANDSCAPE FORMAT 25cm x 20cm. From one of South Africa's leading rail photographers comes this 120 page landscape format book (hardcover, dustjacket) that showcases the all too brief resurgence of steam on the Cape Western system of South African Railways in the 1990s and a final 'swansong' period in 2001. The book centres around fantastic charter operations. The Simon's Town, Bitterfontein, Franschhoek, Sir Lowry's Pass - Caledon, Ceres / Prince Alfred Hamlet branches all are showcased here. Extensive coverage is also given to the Worcester - Riversdale secondary line. Beautiful landscapes are a special feature. For stunning railway photography, look no further.
This landscape format album is a delight, and is presented at an affordable price.
Knowing that there are always people who can't get enough of the fairest Cape, the Author has also produced 'Cape Western Steam'. (See seperate entry in the bookstore) That book is a truly massive 288 page very large (33cm x 28cm) landscape format album that includes all the photographic content of "Steam Byways" PLUS MUCH MORE BESIDES. Even greater coverage of the lines mentioned plus main line action. If you want the fully comprehensive picture, including main line action, and the sheer impression that only a very large format volume can deliver, then 'Cape Western Steam' is for you.
If pricing is an issue (print on demand books are unavoidably a little on the expensive side) then STEAM BYWAYS : CAPE WESTERN is your choice.
Both books are available for complete free preview. Have a look.
