What Areas Does Shooting The West Cover?

When we put together Shooting The West, our aim was to cover as much area as possible, concentrating on main line from Lithgow to Dubbo and Parkes and covering as many other lines as possible.

Some of you will want more detail on the content before purchasing, so here is a list of places covered by the book. In truth to list every single one will be a huge task, but I will do my best.

The list is not exhaustive, but it does cover most of the areas where beautiful colour photos are to be found. Last weekend, I attended a 140 year celebration of the arrival of the Railway  to Orange. There was great interest in the book. At the day, I noticed reproductions of a couple of our images, and I was amazed at the superior quality of "Shooting The West". It seriously brings these to life!

The above photo from the book in its final version truly highlights the western plains. You will discover many of these spectacular scenes come alive in the book.

You can see if your favourite place is represented by scanning the list below. It is by no means exhaustive, but will give you an idea of the vast area covered in "Shooting The West".

Delivery is expected in July, and you can pre-order from this  website to save postage costs.

I have sorted this into Chapters and Subheadings.
