The Vale of Rheidol Light Railway

Opened in 1902 under The Vale of Rheidol Light Railways Act, this famous little narrow gauge railway has passed through Cambrian Railway, Great Western Railway and British Railways ownership and now survives as aprivate concern. Since the precariouis trackbed was literally carved into the lonely hillside with pick, beetle and wedge, countless thousands of holidaymakers have forsaken the sunny beaches of Aberystwyth (or wiled away a rainy day)to make the journey to the secluded falls at Devil's Bridge. The author first saw the railway in 1920 and spent a lifetime photographing, surveying and measuring the line and its infrastructure.This outstanding book begins with details of the line's history, construction and operationIt then goes on to give a detailed description of the stations, halts and sidings, locomotives and rolling stock.
Hardcover, 272 pages, 355 b/w images, numerous plans and drawings.
