Anatomy of a Narrow Gauge Baldwin


John Dennis
 

Hello All,

The LRRSA Shop has just taken delivery of stock of Peter Manning's new book in his "Anatomy" series, The Anatomy of a Narrow Gauge Baldwin. The book is subtitled "The many lives of the Tramway da Cantareira #2 steam locomotive" and features Baldwin No. 37399, a 2 ft gauge 2-4-0 built for the tramway in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Like the previous volumes covering the North East Dundas and Darjeeling Garratts, the book has drawings of components and assemblies, all drawn to Peter's high standard. This book also has a significant amount of historical information supplied by Nicholas Burman. There are 20 prototype photographs to complement Peter's 150 drawings.

The book has been published in the UK, and has been printed on high quality, heavy A4 paper, and is well worth the $60 cost ($54 for members of the society), plus postage. Of course, members can purchase postage free at the Melbourne LRRSA Entertainment meetings; the next meeting will be Thursday April 9 at our usual venue in Ashburton.
