Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0749558679, Hardcover)

Found in some of Britain’s most beautiful scenery, many of these lines have long since closed. However, due to the efforts of preservationists, many now have either reopened or are in the process of being reopened. Julian Holland’s fascinating text is accompanied by nostalgic photographs and ephemera of both closed and and reopened lines in their heyday, along with specially commissioned color photographs of what can be seen today, simple route maps, and information panels on recognized footpaths, cycleways, and nearby attractions of interest to railway enthusiasts. Photographs of the lines from past to present and remarkable archive pictures take the reader on a nostalgic trip to the eccentric world of Britain’s narrow gauge railways. Every aspect of the lines are covered, including their trains and the people who worked on and used them.
