The Duck Hole is a section of the Glenbrook Creek that has long been a popular bushwalking and swimming destination. Keen observers would have noticed some old infrastructure but not known what its origins were.

A new book by Michael Keats and John Fox reads like a detective story. The authors set out to learn more about the historic infrastructure and a systematic investigation was made. In the process the authors refuted some local folklore and discovered the real story behind a fascinating period of rail history in the Blue Mountains.

An A4 size book of 142 pp, includes historic and colour photographs and so much more.
