I’m a bit of a sucker when I see second-hand book shops, as I did at Queenscliff. The one there wasn’t very tidy, and had lots of books tightly stacked on the shelves.
Of particular interest, there were a number of railway books, and I bought a couple, including Famous Railway Stations of the World (published in 1958).
In short, this a descriptive book rather than a reference work, and it’s written very much from a British circa 1958 perspective! But for all that, it’s an interesting read, even though there are numerous generalisations, and I detected at least one inaccuracy (Adelaide has never been on the River Murray, not even back in 1958! See page 142).
I particularly liked the photo of Flinders Street station, which clearly showed a tramway curve linking the north-bound track across Princes Bridge to the west-bound track in Flinders Street. I had not previously been aware that such a curve had ever existed.
