Narrow Gauge Lines of the British Isles


ISBN: 9780711037663 Categories: ,


Although standard gauge railways came to dominate the railways of Britain, there was also a considerable number of narrow gauge lines constructed throughout the British Isles. Although these were predominantly for industrial purposes, a significant number from the Cambeltown and Macrihanish on the Mull of Kintyre, to the Southwold on the Suffolk coast and the Lynton & Barnstaple in North Devon, carried regular passenger traffic.This new book looks in detail at narrow gauge lines across the British Isles, illustrated with a comprehensive selection of both colour and mono photogrpahs, the latter becuase a number of lines had closed before the appearance of colour photography. Informative and extended captions illuminate the illustrations and provide a lovely and nostalgic history of these lines.
