SHOOTING THE WEST
Repeat visitors to this website would be aware that the Cadeco team have been producing quality 'coffee table' books in recent years, featuring regular service New South Wales steam operations from the late 1950s to the early 1970s. Starting above Sydney, Northern Exposures (published in 2014) set what reviewers described as a high benchmark in reproduction of colour photos from those long-gone days; the text, captions and maps reinforcing the premium flavour of the product. Lenses South, which was published in 2016 to even greater critical acclaim, covered steam working in the Sydney area, while its main area of focus was from the state capital down to Albury on the Victorian border.
Inevitably, a book on operations beyond the Blue Mountains had to follow. It is rather quirkily titled Shooting the West. It maintains the photo quality and textual merits of the preceding volumes, so we are happy to recommend it to our less parochial, discerning readers. Come for one last ride with the 'Standards', 'Pigs', 'Eighters' and other classes, big and small, that have briefly drawn our jaded attention to the Antipodes. In this book steam is seen in pleasant rumpled country and also in some of the driest, hottest, flattest semi-desert terrain on earth.
We have a very limited supply, and each of the previous books sold out within six months of arrival in both the UK and Australia. So ... once our stock is gone ... it's gone! There will be no reprints.
