The Railways of Sir Arthur Percival Heywood - Volume One – Duffield Bank and Dove Leys. By James Waterfield

The author has spent many years studying and researching the work of Sir Arthur Heywood, particularly with regards the ‘Minimum Gauge Railway’. He has also built fine full-size working replicas of the locomotives Effie and Ursula, plus various items of Heywood rolling stock, including bogie carriages. They form the core of ‘The Heywood Collection’.

This first volume covers the development of Sir Arthur’s idea and the establishment of his experimental 15 inch gauge line at Duffield. Much fresh information is contained in the text and many new, previously unpublished photographs are included. Even those images previously published, are the subject of fresh scans from originals where possible, giving a clarity not seen before. The locomotives and rolling stock are covered in detail, including over forty detailed scale drawings, prepared by Mike Decker. Coverage is given to the houses, the workshops at Duffield, the 9 inch line at Dove Leys and the Heywood locomotives and stock that ran on the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway. Volume two will cover the Eaton Hall Railway.

336 pages, over 300 photographs, 42 modellers’ scale drawings, 40 drawings, diagrams, maps and plans. ISBN 978-0956515780
