The front cover features a Phil Belbin painting of
Comeng-built "D2"
shunting at the Port Kembla blast furnace of
Australian Iron and
Steel. (though personally I preferred the "Light
Railways" front cover
on LR184 depicting Phil's painting of a Baldwin
steam tram shunting at
Waddington's Glanville works - what a pity Comeng
didn't build steam
trams, only electric trams!)>>>>>>
Hi Phil/all,
Had a real quick browse through the book
at the Newcastle exhibition. It was obviously quick as
I didn't realise the cover was a painting and not a
real shot :-)
Certainly seems to be well worth the cost. I would
have grabbed it there and then but my finances are
headed to towards a layout, Fiji and the Philippines
in coming months.
However I have to say (and I now a few on the group
will not be surprised) that I was glad to see D2 on
the cover. :-)
