This product is currently sold out.

Published in 1960 and written by Josef Sl;ezak and Hans Sterhart, this German language booklet is an early, but typical Slezak book, with small, but uesful side elevation drawings of locomotives and rolling stock.

Published to celebrate 100 years of the Graz-Köflacher-Eisenbahn, an independant railway in Eastern Austria which was famed for its 100  hundred year old 0-6-0 tender locos then in daily use, as well as various later Austrian locomotives of various shapes and sizes.

38 pages, including 8 pages of B&W photos. Numerous drawings. Saddlestitched.

Condition is suprisingly good given that it was largely printed on poorish quality paper which has yellowed somewhat - the 8 pages of photographs are on much better paper. Saddlestitched, but staples are good and not rusted.
