Narrow Gauge Railways in S Caernarvonshire 1

Details

In 1971 the First Edition of this title drew readers' attention from James Boyd's previous book about the Mid-Wales Narrow Gauge Railways, to a treasury of long-abandoned railways in South Caernarvonshire which, until the 1960s had been hardly investigated. In this Second Edition (in two volumes) the author builds still further on his life-long and close knowledge of the subject. He recounts the politics and infighting of the Cambrian, Great Western and London & North Western Railways to secure a greater foothold and share in the then-lucrative North Wales slate industry traffic, and wrench more of it from the monopoly of an entrenched Festiniog Railway.
