About the Book
This very large format album is truly impressive. However, realising that print on demand books are unavoidably a little on the expensive side, the Author has also prepared a smaller 120 page book "Steam Byways : Cape Western" in standard landscape format that is very affordable. This utilises highlights of the branch and secondary line charter activity from 'Cape Western Steam' and is complete in its own right.
But 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.
Both books are available for complete free preview. Have a look.
