This is an auction for MOUNTAIN ENGINEMEN, by Tom Masterson.

Subtitled "Reminiscences of the men on the footplate".

"In this book Mr Masterson tells of his experiences during the decade or so on the footplate, a decade which gave many people more than their share of trouble and hardships in Depression conditions . . . For railway enthusiasts this book has a wealth of information about the various types of locomotives – the AB, the WAB, the Fell engine, the G – and in particular the X class compound, which heralded the dawn of the “big engine” era on the New Zealand railways. It tells of the fraternity of drivers, the routine of driving the old coal-fired engines, the agonies of the Spiral, the lore and characters of the King Country, the towns along the Main Trunk . . . “
