Whilst narrow gauge railways were never as significant in Britain as they were in Ireland, many fascinating lines were operated over the years, some of which are still very much in business.The programme begins in Wales with the Snowdon Mountain Railway filmed in 1931 and again in the 1950s. After a glimpse of horsepower on the remains of the Corris Railway there is lengthy coverage of the Talyllyn and the Festiniog in the pioneering years of their preservation in the early 1950s. Following a visit to the lines at Dinorwic quarry.Heading south, after a glance at ironstone quarry systems in the Midlands there is some excellent coverage of the extensiveBowater Paper Corporation’s system in Kent. The final part of the programme is devoted to a brace of pleasure lines filmed mostly in the 1950s.
This programme, which explores both well known and almost forgotten narrow gauge byways throughout Britain from the west of Scotland to the south coast of England, not forgetting the Isle of Man, will be a delight for all of those interested in the narrow gauge and minor railways of Britain.STEAM CLASSICS LITTLE BOOK Presented in chronological order the last locomotive class featured in this volume of 60 classic engines is the British Railways standard 2-10-0 9F freight class which included Evening Star, the last steam locomotive built by British Railways.The wholesale scrapping of steam was only part of the radical transformation that took place on Britain’s railways in the 10 years up to 1970 and it was probably the suddenness of that change and nostalgia for the cosy familiarity of railways largely unchanged over the preceding 50 years that provided the impetus for Britain’s thriving railway heritage industry.As a tribute to the success of that preservation industry,representatives of virtually all the 60 engines included in this book,can still be seen, whether working on heritage railways, as static exhibits in museums or even running on mainline specials.A chronological record the engines featured in this book are important for either technological innovation or else simple workmanlike efficiency such as the ubiquitous 0-6-0 freight engines built in their thousands and confirming their durability by remaining in service for 50, 60 or even, in some cases, 70 years.
