Narrow Gauge Steam Locomotives of Great Britain & Ireland

In Stock

By Peter Nicholson

This first edition from Platform 5 Publishing is the definitive guide to all narrow gauge steam locomotives known to exist in Great Britain and Ireland of track gauges 1ft 6in to 4ft 6in. It fills a gap between ‘Preserved Locomotives of British Railways’ which contains details of preserved standard gauge steam locomotives still in existence, and ‘Miniature Railways of Great Britain and Ireland’ which deals predominantly with locomotives of gauges from 7¼in to 18in.

Locomotives are listed by builder so that it can be easily seen how many of each type or builder are in existence. For every locomotive details of builder’s number, year of manufacture, type, class, gauge, current location and running number/name are provided. Detailed footnotes provide further information about each locomotive’s origin and history. The information contained has been collated over many years of personal observation and correspondence since the mid-1960s. Also includes 64 colour illustrations, a locomotive names index and a full list of heritage railways, museums and collections where locomotives can be observed. Published 2014. 80 pages.
