The SA Railway Booklet
The excellent article by H W Paar on the Salvation Army Railway stood the test of time and has now been made available again with some additional material.
In just 26 pages, rare and valuable pictures highlight one of the Salvation Army Colony’s greatest achievements: the innovative development of an integrated transport system, including tramways, a railway line and wharf.
These were used to transport bricks by sailing barge from the Hadleigh Farm Colony brickworks, with raw materials coming back from the Salvation Army’s City Colony wharf in London.
The first print run of this booklet sold out in August 2021 and we have taken the opportunity to reprint with slightly improved reproduction.
