Cardiff was of great importance to the Great Western Railway and the BR Western Region. In addition to the extensive railway facilities catering for the heavy flow of traffic between the coalfields, industrial sites and the docks, the city had a considerable variety of stations to handle local and main line passenger services. In the 1950s the facilities on the main line commenced in the east at Rumney River Bridge and ran westwards to encompass the yards of Pengam and Roath, the large goods shed and yard at Newtown, the city's impressive General station and the renowned engine shed at Canton. In this book John Hodge has compiled an outstanding selection of his own and Bob Tuck's photographs to illustrate the railway and its traffic from Marshfield to Canton. Hardback, 104 pages
The spine has faded slightly otherwise the book is fine.
