Northern Exposures Photos In The Tamworth Area

The following photos were taken from “Northern Exposures”, a new full colour pictorial on railway operations in the north of NSW back in the last days of steam in the late 1960s.

The book features the Tamworth area heavily including Werris Creek, Murrurundi to Ardglen, the Barraba line and shots north towards Armidale and beyond. Many have said this is the best quality book of its type ever produced in NSW.

There is also a great story about one person’s cab riding experiences in the Tamworth area.

Here are some photos from the Tamworth area and surrounds.

  1. Hi my grandfather is 90 this year. He spent all of his working life as a steam train driver. I was trying to track down any photos or information about his involvement with this profession. Thank you
