Malcolm Searle described his fifty years working with Western Australia's railways as a love affair. They were years spanning enormous change - for the railways, for Western Australia and for our everyday lives. As a bonus, Malcolm met his future love whilst riding in a train, a train which he took for his interest but which led to marriage and family.

Railway employees were often very dedicated, but few were so in love with rail as to work for 50 years, take photographs, collect books and memorabilia large and small, volunteer in a railway museum, and then sit down and write up his life in great details for his family. The quickest scan of this story, which he had printed out in six large ring binders with numerous photos included, showed that here was a wonderful record of how the railways, and life in general, had changed over nearly six decades. Abridged and edited, it is now presented as this well-illustrated volume.

Rail Heritage WA believes Malcolm's legacy is now an invaluable record of the many changes he saw.
