History, Scope and Organisation 1947
"This is the first attempt ever made to provide a comprehensive survey of a State service whose progress changed from wagon wheel to rails of steel in little more than half a century."

"It is in my sincere belief that this publication will achieve its purpose of placing on permanent record for South Africans and others interested in this fascinating country, the often romantic and always interesting history of the South African Railways."

From the foreword of this book by The Rt. Hon. F.C. Sturrock, M.P. Minister of Transport (1947)
