Singleton Area Information
The book covers steam operations in the late 1960s to early 1970s recording the last few years, before diesels took over all railway movements. At this time, steam was very active in the area, in particular the coal trains to Liddell Mines and the Singleton passenger, one of the longest continual steam hauled trains in Australia.
These are just a few photos from the book taken in the Singleton area. There is extensive coverage of the Singleton passenger, as well as freight operations in the area. There is a section of photos on Singleton and a section featuring the Singleton passenger. It presents in full colour much of the steam railway history that is now gone forever.
