Click to preview THE STEEL KYALAMI THE KIMBERLEY - DE AAR LINE Volume 2 : Steam Swansong [standard landscape version] photo book

*** THIS IS THE STANDARD SIZE LANDSCAPE FORMAT 25cm x 20cm version 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 and re-sizing of some pictures has expanded the book by a further 18 pages. This book focuses on the steam operations in the final years of 'real steam' on the Kimberley - De Aar ( South Africa ) railway line in the early 1990's [ set out in chronological order]. A massive book with no attention to detail spared. 178 pages, + / - 220 photographs, enlivened with anecdotal information and an introduction. Selected from 1000's of photographs taken during this period, 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 for more information. Postage and packing is 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 is also available (but at a higher price)- see separate entry in the bookstore]
N.B. Unsolicited Review : "We have just purchased Vol 2 along with Vol1 and this second volume is just a superb reminder of the final days of this truly superb main line. Having been with Dennis some of the picture in both volumes bring back very happy memories of super days in SA chasing steam. The books are truly superb and we have no hesitation in recommending them. They are unavoidably a little expensive but they are worth it." - Jeff Cogan (Founder FMLSA)
