Sand Hutton Light Railway

Details

This book is a greatly expanded 3rd edition of Ken Hartley's work on the subject, with extra material collected and compiled by Paul Ingham - who was bequeathed Ken's original research material and collection on the railway. The original 15 inch line built in the grounds of Sand Hutton Hall is covered in detail, as is the 1919 Light Railway Order, applied for when Sir Robert Walker wanted to expand the system to serve his estate. The accompanying plans to the LRO are reproduced here for the first time, including that for the unbuilt terminus at Scrayingham. The subsequent conversion to 18 inch gauge is dealt with - as is the Deptford Special Reserve Depot, which was the source of the locomotives and goods wagons for the revised railway. The development of the 18inch locomotive design is covered, with maker's original drawings, as are the 4-wheel wagons. Much expanded on the 1982 2nd edition this is not to be missed. All the images have been re-processed resulting in brighter and clearer reproductions.
