Unfortunately due to covid restrictions, we ahve been unable to get copies of the new book to retail outlets, with the exception of the Railfan Shop in Melbourne.

This leaves me with boxes of books that were destined for shops, and they will probably not be distributed until the lockdowns end in NSW and Victoria.

As a result of this, we are going to provide some more copies at the $85 price, including postage and protective cover hile they last. There are only a few of these left.

We really feel for the bookshops, which are fast dissapearing and important for us to be able to discover train books when they are produced.

We would encourage you, once we are able to move around again, to visit your favourite book shop and see what they avhe to offer.

In the meantime,go to the shop, select “Where There’s Smoke” either part 1 or 2 or both, and enter COVID as the discount code at checkout and you will get free shipping.

This does not apply to other books, which we are selling on behalf of fellow railway book publishers.

We have been supporting the ARE by offering the African Steam Safari series ( including many of my own photos) and the Wheatley Brothers’ excellent Railway Portraits series.

We are very pleased with the response to our books, and the feedback we have received. It motivates us to continue on the journey.

Remember purchase Where There’s Smoke and receive free shipping when entering discount code COVID. This offer is only available for shipping to an Australian address.
