The Golden Valley line was highly photogenic and as a result quite well covered by photographers of the day, but what sets this book apart are the photographs taken by the late Charlie Smith.
Charlie was a engine driver on the line who sometimes took his camera to work. The details and character that he captured with his photographs are truly remarkable.
To accompany the photographs W. Smith provides a written document which features the whole story of the line’s promotion, construction and demise.
