This is the second of two parts. - the first looked predominately at Millars rail and tramways and the role they played in influencing the settlement district around Denmark. It was called 'Denmark through the 1900s: Past and Present Intersect and Converge' This volume looks at the line from Elleker to Denmark and its later extension to Nornalup. As such it focuses on the WAGR history as they took over Millars main line
from Elleker to Denmark in 1907 and in the late 1920s from Denmark to Nornalup. This extension was to be the first stage of the BIG BROOK - DENMARK rail link. Due to the depression, World War II and the rising dominance of the motor vehicle this was never completed. It missed its time and like many railway lines around the world was eventually closed. Along the route were sidings and halts and some of the history of these are recorded here. A4 paperback, pictorial card covers. 295 x 205mm. pp. 376, black & white plates, maps, (some folded), bibliography, abbreviations, appendices, index. FINE.
