Narrow Gauge Album No. 2: Talyllyn Railway: A Journey by Steam (Mainline & Maritime)

2 In Stock

An album of colour illustrations taken by renowned railway photographer, James Waite, of the famous Talyllyn Railway. The book is arranged as a journey along the line from Wharf to Nant Gwernol and features high quality images, all taken in the last 15 years.

The Talyllyn Railway is unique in that it was the only narrow gauge railway anywhere in the world to have been designed and built as a steam-operated passenger line. It was also the first to have been taken over by enthusiasts and now carries far more passengers than it ever saw in the days before preservation.

Narrow Gauge Album No. 2: Talyllyn Railway: A Journey by Steam captures the essence and spirit of this friendly railway. As well as illustrating the steam locomotives and passenger trains that draw in the crowds, it also shows staff and volunteers at work behind-the-scenes, revealing another side to the railway.

The high quality images are taken from locations all along the line and include several taken from less familiar vantage points. They are presented in one-per-page format and caption details accompany every photograph. 120 pages. Hardback
