Southern Cross Engines
AUD $55.00

For 74 years Australia's Toowoomba Foundry produced a range of steam, petrol, kerosene and diesel engines. Each bore the name Southern Cross. From the simple 1 1/2 -horsepower Farm Pump to 100-ton locomotives, the Southern Cross reputation for ruggedness and reliability was known across the globe. In Southern Cross Engines Rob Laurent traces the origins of this famous marque back to a primitive hand-made steam engine of 1876. Using a variety of sources, such as official documents saved from the scrap bin and the memories of men who made the engines, he follows developments at the Foundry until 1983 - when the last engine was made. Included here are the Southern Cross windmills and the many other products and ventures of this enterprising firm. Here too are the apprentices and cadet engineers who went on to become brilliant designers under the guidance of the indomitable G.H. "Puggy" Griffiths, a man who devoted his life to seeing that Southern Cross products were second to none.
