By enginehouse on June 30, 2013
Format: Hardcover
This particular book is truly a little gem to those of us who model highly detailed industrial narrow gauge railways in the so called "Garden Scales" and who seek the ultimate in realism. Covering most of the major industries that utilised narrow gauge rail transport systems, it has a breadth of depth rarely found in modern publications where so often the gritty realism of the black and white photographs have given way to carefully crafted pretty coloured pictures.

The book comprises some 96 pages of pictures of industrial narrow gauge operations, with brief but interesting descriptions of the railway, stock and of the operations depicted on each page, with just a short snippet of history thrown in for good measure. This is by no means a comprehensive list of lines or rolling stock, but is rather a snapshot of a relatively short period of time which led to the demise of the narrow gauge industrial railway soon to be eclipsed by the road transport.
