About the Book
Pictures from the third annual exhibition organized by the Park Railway Society at Brno's Olympia shopping complex. It features not only steam and diesel locomotives running on 5 and 71/2 inch mixed gauge tracks but also model railways, vintage buses, a full size steam loco and road roller plus a steam driven bicycle! The miniature trains give rides to people on 11/2 kilometres of track in an area shared with skateboarders and roller bladers. The emphasis is on people and, if you were there, there's a fair chance you're in the book!. To provide variety some less conventional photographic techniques were used.
