Classic Steam Locomotives of New Zealand: Volume One
By Eric Heath

Classic Steam Locomotives of New Zealand is an historical work of art - having involved the artist in hours of painstaking research from old plans and specifications and days of travel to various parts of the country to view steam locomotive relics and restored examples at museums.

This book takes the reader back in time and shows a chosen selection of steam locomotives which over the years earned a place in the history of our railways - some for noble service, others because they were unique or ahead of their time in design and performance - they will always be remembered as the Classics of their era.

This selection of significant steam locomotives has been illustrated by Eric Heath in a new dimension, combining the skills of a draughtsman and artist, superbly detailed and beautifully crafted to show future generations how these iron horses of a past age appeared in their prime.

The text is by one of New Zealand's leading transport journalists, Bob Stott, who as editor of Rails magazine, is a well-known and acknowledged commentator on transport matters nationwide.
