research for a bool

Hi,
My name is Vincent. I published a book of life in the railways titled: Walk along the tracks. I am now attempting a second book but it is not a sequel. In 1915, a branch line was made to Btg Berjuntai from Kuang. The line is no longer around but on that line you found tin and coal mines, rubber estates and rural pursuits. These were part of the Malayan landscape then. My second book will be about these. There are a couple of chapters on the Rly that I did not cover in my earlier book.

I would like some input if anyone has any to offer. It would be nice to have photos of Kuang, Kundang, Bt Arang, Bkt Badok and Btg Berjuntai rly stations. And other photos too. Would like to talk to people from around these places; they might be a source for oral history told by relatives. I could follow up on those. A few of you people might be from there. Then there was also a railway line owned by coal mine that went all the way up to the Bkt Tinggi area; that was around 22 miles in length. It brought out timber for the coal mines. I am looking for people who had relatives as loggers who worked there. They were called wood-cutters!

Thanks and hope to hear from someone. Vincent
