This is an auction for STEEL ROADS OF NEW ZEALAND: AN ILLUSTRATED SURVEY, by Gordon Troup.

"For a fledgling country sparsely populated, divided into provinces who made the policy decisions initially about public transport - particularly about railways, the gauge, rolling stock and where the lines ran - it was amazing that a national railway system emerged in New Zealand. Under the skilful editorship of Gordon Troup, he along with a number of contributors traces the highlights of New Zealand railway history from 1863 through into the 1970s: the engineering feats, the engine types, and the working toward a single main line throughout each of the North and South Islands. Some of the particularly interesting chapters include: Engine Running 1877 – 1885, Smoke Signals at Rakaia, Steam on Lake Wakatipu, Rails Over the Rimutaka, Baldwins and Box Cars, The Rural Branch Line, The Biography of Ab 608, Main Trunk: Where Men Meet Mountains, The New Zealand “K” Means One Thing, and many more..."
