The outcome: forty-five steam locomotives and three steam wrecking cranes that set standards of excellence that lasted until the South Australian Railways as a corporate body was finally dissolved on 8 December 1975. Not only did Shea excel as a steam locomotive engineer but during the Second World War (and after) he stood out as a giant in the construction of warplanes, munitions and in due course, diesel-electric locomotives. The book opens with the ‘Elusive Search for that Engine’ describing the first two decades of the 20th Century when the SAR was paralysed by poor administration. There followed further engines erected in the re-born Islington Workshops and the purchase of three new Wrecking Cranes from Cowans, Sheldon. Ron Stewien’s second book in the series on the history of the South Australian Railways promises to be a welcome companion to Ron and Malcolm Thompson’s Volume 1 ‘The Early Years’. Ron has skipped to Volume 6 at the request of readers anxious to read about the mighty 500, 600, 700, 710 and 720 Class locomotives inspired by Commissioner Webb and delivered by Shea, his outstanding Chief Mechanical Engineer. This book matches Volume 1 in general style but with more pages (340), more colour and more photographs (207 black and white, six sepia and 17 in full colour, including front cover), one painting in full colour, three maps, 40 diagrams and plans. A History of the South Australian Railways Volume 6: Mountains, Mikados and Pacifics is available now. We meet each month on the 3rd Saturday at Ross House, 247 Flinders Lane, Melbourne from 2pm to 4pm.


The club runs rolling stock, that is from any manufacturer (Kato, Tomix, Greenmax) and pulled by Japanese prototypes ie. Their intention was to find fellow Japanese model railway enthusiasts to participate with them in the enjoyment and fun.
The Kato modular system was enlisted using the Kato Unitrack (which at the time was the only track available).
The main outcome of the Box Hill exhibition was more members joining the Japanese Model Railway Group. With the continuing success at Box Hill, the club began exhibiting at model railways shows in and around Melbourne and has always attracted great interest. Then came Bill Webb from the US who immediately called tenders for the first 30 of his new brand of power. Finally, at the end there are three double page spreads and three gatefolds of the 500, 600 and 700 class engine and tender general arrangement drawings. This attracted great interest from visitors to the festival and from other model railway enthusiasts. Appreciation of the show by all visitors to the Japan festival, gave encouragement to the club.


In next to no time he found one very obvious weakness; an inadequate, run down and completely inefficient locomotive fleet. When it was realised that the Mikados might as a class exceed 50 engines they were moved to the ‘700’ block where they could build up to 100 locomotives if necessary.
A contract was let and Fred Shea went to the Armstrong, Whitworth works in Newcastle-upon-Tyne to set the wheels in motion.
Japanese visitors were especially intrigued to see models of trains they knew from back home, running around the tracks. Boys, girls, mums and dads watching the trains, filled the exhibition room throughout the day. Taking the bull by the horns, he right away appointed Fred Shea from Victoria as his new Chief Mechanical Engineer, setting Fred on the road to becoming one of Australia’s great engineers.
After delivery of these engines, a period of running in threw up many problems culminating in an impending court battle with Armstrong, Whitworth but which was thankfully settled out of court.
