AUGUST 1987.


Published by Australian Railways Historical Society - Victoria: Primarily focused on VR - VICRAIL - VICTORIAN RAILWAYS, but some have interstate news and features.

Complete your collection! - Also heaps of stuff in these for the rail fan, modeller, railway, local or family historian! Names, dates, pictures etc.

General Stuff: Hundreds of these and similar to come, as they surface and as time allows. Listed as 'GOOD' but all are in good to very good condition. This means you should expect some signs of light usage, the occasional biro marks, finger marks, occasional notes, old price stickers, the odd rusty or missing staple, tea stain, bumped corners, occasional crease,  and the like. I simply don't have the time to inspect every page with a microscope. They are what they are and most will have some minor flaws. 


Usually around 20 -24 pages per issue, 24.5 x 17cm approx 550g per dozen. FLAT RATE POSTAGE of $2.00 per issue posted anywhere in Australia, sleeved and card backed in a padded postpack. Postage discounted to actual cost for multiple purchases, or excess refunded. Overseas shipping at actual cost - rate shown is for Airmail on a package up to 500g, to give you an idea, but as always, I only ever charge the actual cost, and refund any excess.

I'm not going to exhaustively list each news item and article in these - there's just too many and it takes forever! Brilliant little windows on the world of the VR, with painstaking, accurate details of their time, compiled by dedicated enthusiasts - A very high quality publication for what it is - so good in fact that I'm keeping a full set for myself. These are my duplicate copies, collected over the years and once they're gone, that's it!

Obviously, multiple issues bought and shipped at the same time will save you heaps on postage.

ALL ONE PRICE to make my life easy - Buy 10 or more copies at the"Buy it Now" price and I'll pay the postage within Australia!

Grab 'em while you can - Coz they ain't printin' these any more! 



NOTE 1: Watermark "JPE" does not appear on actual newsletters. 

*Remember to check out my

"SATURDAY NIGHT SPECIALS" -  No frills, no bells, no whistles, just 30 day, 'BUY IT NOW' listings for cheap as chips used books - paperbacks, hardbacks, fiction, non-fiction, technical, topical, or just plain twaddle! Vast range of subjects - you name it, I've got it - and YOU can have it, or them, at bargain basement prices and you don't even have to leave the house and go to the bargain basement! (Just go to my Ebay Store and click on SATURDAY NIGHT SPECIALS!)

They're too good to throw out, but not special enough to spend a lot of time and effort in listing them.

Buy a bunch and combine purchases to save on shipping.

Buy 10 or more, and I'll pay the standard rate postage!

Buy a hundred for your new apartment or the bookcase in you office and be an instant bibliophile, pseudo intellectual or an overnight expert! Some of them will inevitably have dog-eared pages, underlinings, the occasional torn (but not missing) page, bumped corners, shelfwear, fingermarks or coffee stains.

Some might even have a combination of some of these.........It just adds to their cred - AND YOURS! They're books with a past!,They've been around a little!! They've been loved before - maybe even more than once! (Told you they had a past, didn't I?) Sold on a non returnable basis, so choose carefully!


These BUY IT NOW listings will start from $CHEAP - CHEAP ENOUGH to throw in the river as you run from the scene of the crime. (It's OK, they're bio-degradeable.) Cheap enough to leave behind on the train without shedding a tear, or give to your painful younger sibling without feeling any guilt whatsoever..........

YES FOLKS! - SHOCK! - HORROR! - GASP! - Hard to believe I know, but it's true - I'm thinning my extensive collection of eclectia, esoterica, arcana, exotica and requisite bits prior to moving house - that will at least halve the packing and unpacking I have to do and simplify my world no end. I figure than one 40 foot container full of 'stuff' should be enough for anybody - even me! (And, just for the record, the boss agrees!

There's thousands of books, magazines, hardware, collectibles - many rare, unique and historical train/railway/railroad, locomotive, steam engine, marine, aviation, automobilia, industrial, engineering and related items - Many Bargains and ALL OF 'EM LOOKING FOR A GOOD HOME!  Most of my items are personal items which, for one reason or another, are surplus to my requirements. Maybe it’s a spare, second copy of a book or magazine, or reflects a change in direction. Maybe it was something I bought 'On Spec' and which wasn’t what I needed/wanted/thought it would be.

Most of my items are used: Although usually in Good to Very Good Condition, and I describe any known defects honestly & realistically. Of course there will occasionally be things that slip past - If anything like that happens, please contact me. Good communication can solve most problems before they become one, and I'm happy to work with you.  

Do yourself a favour: Watch this space over the next several months - you won't believe some of the stuff I'm moving so I don't have to move it! About the only thing that I'm not listing (at this stage) is the proverbial 'Kitchen Sink'.............but I do have a spare, and you just never know...............!

SHIPPING: WILL SHIP WORLDWIDE according to your instructions and subject (of course) to receipt of appropriate payment. Registered or insured postage is recommended for anything, and required for all sales over A$100.00.  HAPPY TO COMBINE MULTIPLE ITEMS FOR OVERSEAS OR DOMESTIC SHIPPING - IN KEEPING WITH COMMON SENSE & ECONOMY!

The Ebay Shipping Calculator is confusing, convoluted, difficult to use and often inaccurate. If it undercharges - a little - I'll wear it. If it overcharges, I'm more than happy to refund any excess, or you can shout me a beer.

THOUSANDS OF ITEMS to be listed from as little as $0.99cents, as and when time permits!

Please contact seller within 48 hours to arrange shipping and finalise payment -
