Tasmanian Railways Past and Present - Volume 1

  • $29.95

Ever since the first railway in Tasmania was opened in 1871, a huge variety of steam and diesel locomotive types have operated throughout the state.

With the introduction of the English Electric X class in the early 1950's, it was a sign of things to come, and by the next decade steam was gradually being withdrawn from traffic.

Thankfully a number of locomotives did survive for a while longer, and thanks to rail enthusiasts such as Ralph Proctor, their final years of TGR work were captured on film for the future.

In this programme we present a collection of 8mm colour films from the TGR era, and finish with contemporary scenes on the Western Line between Launceston and Devonport during early 2018.

Highlights in this programme include:

1971 Tasmanian Railway Centenary, M6 on the Mole Creek Line, Q12 on an excursion to New Norfolk and Hayes, C20 on the Stanley Line, H2 on a test run after overhaul, H7 and H8 on the Fingal Line, H7 and H8 double heading from Conara to Launceston, H class climbing the St Leonards Bank with passenger, mixed and freights, M and MA class on the now closed North East Line, CCS motive power on the Mole Creek branch, H2 and M4 on the cement train, M4 being turned on the Devonport turntable, CCS23 on an excursion to Ross and much more!
