Steam supreme. There are lots of railwaymen, who have departed from this world, and many are still alive, however very few have written about their experiences as employees while working for the Western Australian Government Railways. These incidents laughable or sad would be lost forever, which is the reason I am writing this book, (The Era of Steam Engines). The age of steam running supreme has vanished but the memories live on in the minds of men and women who worked in this steam-era. I will try to give a full account in this book of what it was like to be one of those people; working diligently in this era, making many permanent friends for life and how I enjoyed working steam and diesel locomotives.
