As author, I would say your best bet would be to keep checking Ebay.  I sold out in 1999!

thanks simon.

i actually had a copy, but lost it in a move.

do you think it's one that might be worth a reprint?  clearly a popular book, i've been monitoring ebay for it for the last year and it's never shown up.

Hi Ben / all,

With new printing technology etc plus the flow of years since 1998, an update may be more appropriate than a reprint.  Sort of like happened with Rails Through the Bush second edition, which was more than a reprint.

I think there are many possibilities out there, for example with someone doing a book of the 1970s in WA.

While on the topic of old books, if anyone has spare copies or is willing to sell copies of

"The Diesel Mechanical Railcars of the WAGR" and "Perth Electric, A new Era" I'd be very keen

Thanks

Re the 1940s to 1960s era,many keen authors self- published  WA  Rails books of variety of activities. Along came the Preserved Railways who did likewise.
These were limited editions and many still probably exist and many families clearing out the estate of collectors do not value them highly;so many publications /research will be lost to posterity.

Perhaps Rail Heritage might act for these  books to be sent to it for their archives and perhaps sell off some for the group :worthy cause and the books still prove valued research resource.
I have willed my collection in this case.

Well what does one do with his collection of 8mm film and 35mm slides of the era 1960's to the mid 1970's along with a collection of other railway bits and pieces along with books etc. Yes a hard decision so some is left to my Grand Nephew who has a liking for railways and some to RHWA. But the bottom line is that the items have been saved and some one out there will welcome them into there collection until their time comes and the process repeats it self.
