Masters of
WA
This book is the culmination of 30
years of research by the author
who is the research officer for Rail
Heritage WA. As such he received
many enquiries from families and
local historical societies.
As well as the detailed listings, the
book includes a valuable overview
of the SM’s role and how that
developed over time.
