The X CLASS ERA in Western Australia, An illustrated history by Peter Gould.

For the first time all in one book, the story of 48 locomotives that ushered in the modern era on WA railways.
The X class were unveiled with great promise, then suffered so many problems as to cast doubt on whole idea, and bring about a royal commission.
But WAGR engineers eventually solved the problems and these engines went on to give three decades of service all over the system, whether on the express passenger trains or with goods on the most remote branch lines.
Peter Gould has researched and recorded their design and construction, the problems operating in WA's harsh environment, the royal commission and politics and their service life.
Each of the 48 locos has an individual entry with photograph and life history notes.
More than 200 pages, A4 size, numerous photographs mostly in colour.

Station Masters of Western Australia, by Jeff Austin.

The railway Station Master was a feature of life in Western Australia for 120 years. In rural towns he was one of the few civil servants who would always be there. Other station masters worked where there were no towns, still vital to ensure safe movement of passengers and freight.
In this book, researcher Jeff Austin has chronicled not only the era and role of the Station master, but has listed them all by name and dates. An index to surnames make the book equally valuable for genealogy and local history research.
160 pages, historical photos including colour.
