Railways of Wales in the 1960s

Availability: In stock

The beauty of its mountain and coastal scenery has always made the railways of North Wales special. During the 1960s, as fast as steam was fading on the main lines, it was flourishing on the narrow gauge railways, hinting at the great potential that was to come. Those fledgling railways that are today’s major tourist attractions possessed a special, rudimentary charm as they came to terms with the challenges of gearing up for a new army of admirers.

This book takes you on a tour in essays and colour pictures of all the narrow gauge railways then in operation and also the British Rail routes that were facing an uncertain future. John Evans brings his unique way with words and pictures to capture a scene that has in many ways changed dramatically … and meets some veteran locomotives that we can still enjoy today.
