About the Book
Farewell Melbourne Yard details the changes that took place when the 'old' Melbourne Yard in Victoria was converted to a Hump Yard. The book has 50 colour & B&W photos showing the changes.
The book also includes the story 'The Long Cold Ride'.
During my 37 year career on the footplate for the Victorian Railways, with 30 of those as a Locomotive Driver, I had the opportunity to take many photographs relating to the VR system. I also had a 10 week tour around Australia in 1981. Since retiring in 2002 I have made trips to the various states which has allowed me to add to my photo collection.
