Rails Toward the Sky

Rating
This is the story of what one person can achieve with vision and an inexhaustible determination to succeed against all odds. When Barry Brickell became New Zealand's first full-time craft potter he combined his passion for railways with his engineering skills to build a short line for bringing clay and firewood down from the hills to his Coromandel kilns. Over the next 30 years he kept extending the line, always just a bit higher, to haul thousands of native trees for restoring hillsides ravaged by mining, logging and farming and to find a more perfect view over the Hauraki Gulf. Driving Creek Railway is now a major tourist attraction carrying thousands of passengers a year over the spectacular spirals, zigzags and the world's only double-deck railway viaduct. The tracks and the trains have all been designed and built by Barry, with some help from volunteers and fellow enthusiasts, and in this fascinating and beautifully illustrated book he tells us how he managed it.
