Re: Choppers and Chippers

Fixing the description of this book has been on my to-do list for a little while. Unfortunately Norman Houghton (author and publisher) does not provide a blurb himself, and the book was added to our stock lists in a hurry to meet Light Railways deadlines, before we had even seen a copy ourselves. At the time I had very little information to go on.
Choppers and Chippers is a logging history, covering all facets of the industry. There are some wonderful tramway photos and information, but it is not a "railway" book as such. It covers the logging industry in the West Otway, and is a companion volume to Sawdust and Steam, which covers the East Otways. Both boos taken together expand significantly on Norm's earlier work, The Beechy.
Hope this helps,
