About the Book
** THIS IS THE STANDARD LANDSCAPE FORMAT VERSION OF THIS TITLE 25cm x 20cm and is A SECOND EDITION OF THIS POPULAR BOOK. Covers are new, content is the same (as first edition) but colour saturation has been corrected and brightness enhanced, where considered desirable.This volume focuses upon the steam operations in 'real steam' days of the Kimberley - De Aar ( South Africa ) railway line in the 1980's [ set out in geographical order]. 160 pages, 225 photographs, enlivened with anecdotal information and an introduction. Selected from 1000's of photographs taken over a decade, this is a Volume to treasure. Every page is available on Preview, so you can see exactly what it is you are buying. The Author believes this is only right, considering the inevitable high cost of 'print on demand' books. Please e mail Moore3450@mweb.co.za for more information. Courier delivery charges are almost the same for several books , as for a single book. So please consider other titles in the Author's BLURB catalogue, and / or get together with like minded friends to combine an order. [Please note that a very large landscape version 33cm x 28cm of this book is also available (but at a higher price)- see separate entry in the bookstore] .......................
