Plateway Press Norwich, Norfolk, England 1996 116 Pages with Black/White Photos and Maps. This 116 page book tells the story of narrow gauge railways "between 1916-1918 during World War I. They were the lifeline for millions of men in the trenches of France and Belgium, transporting ammunition and supplies from standard gauge railheads to the front lines. This second volume of 'Narrow Gauge at War" continues the story of the War Department Light Railways, and its Australian, British and Canadian Light Railway Operating Companies, on the Western Front and further afield - in Italy, the Balkans and the Middle East. Using contemporary reportage, numerous illustrations and specially drawn maps, this book provides a further tribute to the narrow gauge railway's 'Finest Hour'."
