Narrow Gauge Album 1950-1965 in Colour


Several of the lines featured within these pages were saved: the Welshpool & Llanfair, the Ffestiniog, the Talyllyn and, eventually when BR finally tired of running it, the Vale of Rheidol, form between them a core part of the narrow gauge lines of North Wales that now attract tourists in their thousands, together with the Snowdon Mountain Railway. The Isle of Man Railway is also still with us, albeit much reduced, but the sizeable Welsh slate quarry systems were just too complicated and industrial to save; the English ironstone systems have also gone along with the industry they served. In Ireland, the Cavan & Leitrim, West Clare and County Donegal are all long closed but have short preserved lines on a part of their routes. This is a chance then to enjoy many of these lines and the myriad range of sturdy locomotives that worked them as they were, a couple when in the early throes of their preservation, but most when they were in the final years of performing the job for which they were built.
