Great Railway Book Sale
Following the success of the Great Railway Book Sales, the Puffing Billy Preservation Society has the pleasure of announcing Book Sale dates for the second half of 2012. Each of these dates coincide with the monthly Gembrook Market. A huge collection of mainly rail-interest books and other publications will be on sale at Puffing Billy's Gembrook station.
The Puffing Billy Preservation Society (PBPS) has accumulated a significant number of items from various bequests and donations, which are surplus to the requirements of our proposed Puffing Billy library.
Included in the sale will be large quantities of periodicals, magazines and journals from a wide variety of publishers, mainly Australian, British and American. Many old and rare items will be included for early bargain-hunters.
Also on sale will be hundreds of high-quality, rail-interest hard-cover books, many of them rare and hard to find. The majority of these feature American rail transport themes, including the ‘big’ railroad companies and their systems, long-forgotten branch lines, the electric interurban lines and many more topics, ranging from the steam era to more modern times.
This will be a book and magazine sale not to be missed, so come early and grab a bargain! Items will be reasonably priced and all proceeds will go towards the current restoration of Puffing Billy’s Climax locomotive. A good cause, deserving of your support!
