An Illustrated History of the Shropshire and Montgomeryshire Light Railway
Johnson, Peter      
ISBN: 9780860936190
Oxford Publishing Co. Hersham, Surrey, England 2008 Edition: First Edition  Soft Cover 125 Pages with Sepia, Black/White Photos and Line Drawings. The Shropshire and Montgomery Light Railway's origins date back to the 1860s and an impecunious line called the Potteries Shrewsbury North Wales Railway opened its main line initially in 1866. Like many rural lines, the Potts, as it became nicknamed, struggled to make ends meet and was to suffer regular periods of closure during the late 19th century and indeed was all but wound up in the 1880s. Somehow it survived and in the first decade of the 20th century its fortunes were revived under the influence of the great Colonel Stephens, king of light railways in Great Britain. The line passed to the control of the army during World War II - a number of camps were constructed along the route - and it remained under military control until it was largely closed in 1960. The final section, serving an oil terminal near Shrewsbury Abbey station, survived until the 1880s. This is a highly illustrated history of this rural line from its origins in the 1860s through to the role of the military in World War 2 and subsequent closure. With a large number of unseen photographs and line drawings the book also includes railway ephemera (tickets, timetables, etc.) that will be of interest to the reader.  Very Good/Good

The Glyn Valley Tramway
Milner, W. J.      
ISBN: 0860932869
Oxford Publishing Co. Dorset, England 1984 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 144 pages b/w photos line drawings - The Glyn Valley Tramway was a narrow gauge railway that ran through the Ceiriog Valley in north-east Wales, connecting Chirk with Glyn Ceiriog in Denbighshire (now Wrexham County Borough). The gauge of the line was 2 ft 4 1/2 in (724 mm). The total length of the line was 8 1/4 miles (13.3 km), 6 1/2 miles (10.5 km) of which were worked by passenger trains, the remainder serving a large granite quarry and several minor slate quarries. The Glyn Valley Tramway was a narrow gauge railway that ran through the Ceiriog Valley in north-east Wales, connecting Chirk with Glyn Ceiriog in Denbighshire (now Wrexham County Borough). The gauge of the line was 2 ft 4 1/2 in (724 mm). The total length of the line was 8 1/4 miles (13.3 km), 6 1/2 miles (10.5 km) of which were worked by passenger trains, the remainder serving a large granite quarry and several minor slate quarries. In 1885 additional parliamentary powers were obtained to abandon the Quinta Tramway section between Pontfaen and Chirk Bank, replacing it with a new line from Pontfaen to the Great Western Railway's Chirk Station. A two mile extension was also authorized from Glyn to the quarries around Pandy. Rebuilding of the line was undertaken with steam locomotives borrowed from the Snailbeach District Railways. The new line was opened for freight traffic in 1888 and to passengers in 1891. The new line was operated by steam locomotives purchased from Beyer Peacock in Manchester. The two original locomotives, Sir Theodore and Dennis were joined by a third, Glyn in 1892. These tram locomotives worked the line until 1921 when an ex-War Department Light Railways locomotive was purchased. This locomotive was regauged by Beyer Peacock from its original 1 ft 11 1/2 in (597 mm) gauge. After the First World War costs started to rise significantly, while revenues did not. The railway's financial situation declined steadily during the 1920s. The railway needed to carry approximately 45,000 tons of traffic per year to break even. In 1929 it carried 64,857 tons, but by 1932 this had dropped to 21,400 tons. Increased use of road haulage and a change in the ownership of the remaining quarries was the cause of this downturn in traffic. In 1932 a bus service was started in the valley, for the first time offering passengers a serious competition to travelling on the tramway. Passenger receipts declined steeply that year, and passenger services were abandoned at the beginning of 1933. Freight traffic continued to decline and the losses to mount on the railway and all services ceased in July 1935 as the company went into voluntary liquidation. The locomotives were all scrapped in 1936.   Good/Good

The Wagga Wagga to Tumbarumba Railway: Why Was it Built?
Tumba Rail & Wagga Wagga Rail Heritage      
Tumba Rail & Wagga Wagga Rail Heritage Wagga Wagga, NSW, Australia 2017 Edition: First Edition  Soft Cover 28 Pages with Black & White Photos. The book "The Wagga Wagga to Tumbarumba Railway - Why was it built?" is a celebration of the centenary of the opening of the Ladysmith Railway Station. This occurred on the same day that the line was officially opened to Humula without ceremony on May 14 1917, The book is a joint production by Tumba Rail and the Wagga Wagga Rail Heritage Association, however Ron Madden and Mark Pottie collected the majority of the content. It seeks to demonstrate that when the line was constructed right through until the end of the Steam Era, there were good reasons why the line was built. Financially however, it failed to live up to its assessments of some of its most prominent proponents, who often had vested interests in seeing the line built. The railway didn't ever return a penny against the capital outlaid to construct it, although that was far from an unusual state of affairs in the Steam Era of NSW. Many of the railways were built when the horse was still the main form of transport and only the wealthy had steam or petrol driven cars or motor lorries. The line was built when State Governments were boldly going into the wilderness to open up the land, because that's what the people wanted, and with Australia a growing Nation, it needed the produce that branch lines could supply. In the long run, however, most branch lines couldn't compete against cars and trucks and in time became the irrelevant equivalents of snail mail in an email driven world.  New/No Jacket

46 Class Remembered - the 46 Class Electric Locomotive of the New South Wales Department of Railways
Fathers, Ian & Verdich, Ross      
ISBN: 0909650578
Australian Railway Historical Society (NSW) Redfern, NSW, Australia 2002 Edition: First Edition  Soft Cover 64 pages colour photos - Images of each of the 40 locomotives and every livery.- The New South Wales 46 class were a class of mainline electric locomotive introduced onto the NSW rail system from 1956 under New South Wales Government Railways. Metropolitan-Vickers and its partner Beyer, Peacock and Company obtained the contract to build 40 of these locomotives The locomotives were built at Bowesfield Works, Stockton-on-Tees, England, with electrical equipment supplied by Metropolitan-Vickers from its Trafford Park and Sheffield plants. Metropolitan-Vickers drew on experience gained from its earlier class EM1 and EM2 electric locomotives, which were used on the Woodhead Line in the UK and in The Netherlands. These electric locomotives were originally purchased as part of the Blue Mountains electrification works, and spent their life hauling coal, freight and passenger carriages under the wires. The 46 class locomotives were often seen double or triple heading coal and freight services. The class 46 was the most powerful locomotive in Australia for many years, with a one hour rating of 3,780 horsepower (2,820 kW) and ability to deliver more than that for short periods. They proved to be very reliable and were generally considered superior to the much newer and even more powerful Comeng-Mitsubishi 85 class and 86 class electric locomotives. Their build quality and durability was such that 38 of the original 40 remained on the books in 1990.  New/No Jacket

Trains, Coal and Turf: Transport in Emergency Ireland
Rigney, Peter      
ISBN: 9780716530107
Irish Academic Press Dublin, Ireland 2010 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 225 Pages with Black/White Photos. The GSR operated all railway lines which lay wholly within Eire, and was the main transport provider during the Emergency. In this book, author Peter Rigney describes how the company coped to keep trains moving, and challenges the view that Emergency rail service was one of unremitting chaos. In fact, the experience of the GSR in these years was similar to railway companies in other neutral countries. The GSR was Ireland's biggest coal importer, one of its largest single employers, and its biggest owner of engineering workshops. It played a key role in the Anglo-Irish trade diplomacy which helped the Allied war effort, kept the Irish economy ticking over, and was the main means of transporting turf to heat homes. The book is based on a wide range of sources such as the British and Irish National Archives, the Archives of the Irish Railway Record Society, national and provincial newspapers, the trade press, and of memoirs written by railwaymen of the period. The book also examines such diverse themes as soap rationing, fuel poverty, and desertion from the British forces. It shows that wartime trade co-operation was much greater than previously thought. The Emergency experience caused Irish railway managers to move towards diesel locomotives earlier than their counterparts in Europe and particularly their counterparts in Britain. Railway and Canal History Society in the UK awarded their overall 2012 Transport History Book of the Year to Trains, Coal and Turf. The book also was joint winner of the society's 2012 Railway Book of the Year.  Very Good/Very Good
