Since the publication of the first edition of An Australian Locomotive Guide, four completely new designs of locomotives have entered service and new examples of existing types have appeared under new ownership, as well as to existing operators. Some locomotives have changed hands. Meticulously revised and updated throughout, this second edition includes new entries for new types, as well as updated information for those types affected by new deliveries, sale, or transfer overseas. Technical data has been provided in the new entries and these have been included in the correct sequence to maintain the book's emphasis on technical development. *** From the First Edition: The contents cover operating preserved steam locomotives (a small proportion of the book) and mainline diesel and electric locomotives used on Australia's former government railways, those which have passed to or been purchased by the post-government private operators, and the locomotives of the major private railways...a handy reference.... -- Ian Dunn, Australian Model Railway Magazine *** Librarians: ebook available [Subject: Australian Studies, Railways, Transportation, Reference]
