Narrow Gauge and Industrial Railways: The Late 1940s to Late 1960s (Amberley)

Back Order

An album of colour and black & white photographs illustrating Britain's narrow gauge and industrial railways between the late 1940s and the late 1960s.

Industries as diverse as slate, iron, paper, glass, food and tourism relied on dozens of small railways to keep people and goods moving. At quarries, factories and picturesque rural stations, Brian and Ian Reading explore scenes, many of which have now changed beyond recognition.

This photographic tour includes the Isle of Man Railway, Stewarts & Lloyds Minerals at Corby, British Industrial Sand at Middleton Towers & Leziate, the Wissington Light Railway, Richard Garrett Engineering Leiston Works, Bowater’s Railway at Sittingbourne, Kemsley & Ridham Dock, the Vale of Rheidol Railway, the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway, Dinorwic Quarries (Padarn) Railway, Penrhyn Quarry Railway, the Talyllyn Railway and the Festiniog (Ffestiniog) Railway.

A short introduction to each featured location is included and each photograph is accompanied by an informative caption. 96 pages.
