The subject of this account has engaged James Boyd's curiosity for over 50 years; it concerns on of the most captivating railway sites in North Wales. This work includes a feast of photographs and delightful drawings, with maps specially prepared for this erudite coverage of an era now vanished. Not only railways, but people, places, industries, ships, social orders - now all a memory - are faithfully recorded, for the Penrhyn railways were amongst the first 'private' systems born of the French Wars and the Industrial revolution. The author brings an unassailable, lifetime's involvement in his subjects. The series, of which this volume forms a part, are not only backed by the author's own unique, close personal knowledge in both fieldwork and documentation, but also by a team of enthusiastic assistants, each a specialist in his own field. The book consists of 232 pages in all, with 95 photographs. It has printed endpapers and is casebound with a gold-blocked spine. This book has a full colour laminated dustjacket
