Narrow gauge,The Early Years Of The Motor Rail & tram car company
This book gives a good overview of some of the very many different narrow gauge railways that have served British industry over the last century or so. The narrow gauge railway was born within the mining and quarrying industry but despite the huge interest in such railways worldwide the number of books giving a detailed coverage of them is still relatively small so it is hoped that this new work will help meet a real need.
Primarily pictorial in content it consists of around 125 black and white illustrations most previously unpublished, giving a good general coverage of industrial of all gauges less than standard in Great Britain and operated by all forms of motive power from the horse to the diesel locomotive. The contents have been grouped into ten areas, each section preceded with a brief introduction and location map with a detailed caption for every illustration.
