Maker and Role
Robert A. John, Author
Production Date
"In recent years, many enthusiasts have been keen to see what NZR's last steam years were like, which encouraged the author to preserve a small piece of New Zealand's rail history. The images are from the author's private collection. Recalling decades when steam locomotives ruled New Zealand's railways, and seeing my old negatives being reproduced for this book, has been exciting and a real privilege." - introduction
