The Deeside Line: Scotland's Royal Railway (GNSRA)

5 In Stock

The Deeside Line: Scotland’s Royal Railway by Keith Fenwick is a completely revised publication, with additional illustrations, based on the Great North of Scotland Railway Association’s “Royal Deeside’s Railway”, a popular title which was first published in 1996 and has since been reprinted on a number of occasions with small revisions.

The Deeside Line ran from Aberdeen up the Dee Valley to Ballater. Originally built by the independent Deeside Railway, the line became part of the GNSR, then the LNER from 1923 and subsequently the Scottish Region of BR from 1948. Modern traction in 1958 brought hope of a bright future, but that was only temporary and the line closed in 1966. Today the Deeside Way makes use of much of the trackbed and the heritage railway at Milton of Crathes gives people the chance to ride a train over part of the track.

43 colour and 72 black & white illustrations. 88 pages.
