James Waite 296 pages hardcover
This is James Waite's second
book for Pen & Sword about narrow gauge railways. He has travelled
extensively in search of interesting, and often obscure, railways in
His previous book looked at the narrow gauge scene around the world
and how many of its historic railways were surviving in the twenty first
century. This new volume looks at some of them in greater detail and
uses much hitherto unpublished material.
The book is full of attractive and rarely seen photos. Some of them
depict railways that were in their last days of everyday use, while
others show heritage operations which still look much as they did when
the trains were running commercially.
