The Festiniog Railway from 1950
Wilson, Andrew      
ISBN: 0752423975
Tempus Publishing Inc Stroud, Gloucestershire, United Kingdom 2002 Edition: First Edition  Soft Cover 128 Pages with Black/White Photos. The Festiniog Railway can trace its history back to 1829 and it was constructed to serve the slate quarries in the area. It was built to the gauge of 2ft as this was the track width used in the quarries. Originally powered by gravity and horses, by 1863 steam had come to the line. In 1869 the first Fairlie-designed double locomotive appeared. The railway was built to serve the slate trade but by the First World War trade had declined due to a number of factors. Passenger traffic was by then the mainstay of trade and the summer tourists kept the line in profit. But the Second World War was to see the closure of the line. It lay after the war, neglected and vandalised, until 1950 when steps were made towards preservation. By 1954 that had become a reality and the wonderland of Wales was back up and running. Today it is one of the best known of Wales' narrow gauge railways.  Very Good/No Jacket

The Snailbeach District Railways
Tonks, Eric S.      
ISBN: 9781901556490
The Industrial Railway Society  2007 Edition: Reprint  Soft Cover 52 Pages with Black/White Photos & Line Drawings - Snailbeach District Railways was a British narrow gauge railway in Shropshire. It was built to carry lead ore from mines in the Stiperstones to Pontesbury where the ore was transshipped to the Great Western Railway's Minsterley branch line. Coal from the Pontesford coal mines travelled in the opposite direction. The line ended at Snailbeach, the location of Shropshire's largest and richest lead mine, though there had been a plan to extend it further, which would have brought it closer to more lead mines.  As New/No Jacket

Rails to Achill: A West of Ireland Branch Line
Beaumont, Jonathan      
ISBN: 0853615888
The Oakwood Press Usk, England 2002 Edition: First Edition  Soft Cover 160 Pages with Black/White Photos and Drawings. If you travel from Westport in the west of Ireland through Newport and Mulrany to Achill Sound today, here and there you will see overgrown sections of railway embankment, bridges and a couple of tunnels, as well as the magnificent stone viaduct across the river in Newport. These are the surviving remnants of the old Achill line - a branch line built at the close of the 19th century to help develop the area and link it with the outside world. The promoters of the line had high hopes for its future, and the railway was opened to the public in several sections in 1894/5. It proved to be a great social and economic asset to this area of County Mayo, but traffic never consistently reached the levels originally anticipated, and as a result the line was not profitable for much of the year. Development of road traffic in the 1930s sealed the fate of the rails to Achill, and the last train ran in the autumn of 1937 - a mere 42 years after the line had opened. Since then, trains have operated from Dublin just as far as Westport, which is now the railhead for the area. The track onwards to Achill was dismantled in 1938. Today, the remaining stone and earthworks, along with the old railway station buildings at Newport, Mulrany and Achill Sound stand in mute testimony to the line; the local businessmen who promoted it, the builders, and the people who used it. The course of the line is still very identifiable for most of its length, despite over 60 years having elapsed since the last train ran. Here and there, parts of it have a new use now. The viaduct in Newport is a beautifully restored prominent local landmark with a path along the top, giving the visitor a glimpse of the spectacular views that were possible from the train. Newport goods shed is now a small chapel, while Achill station has become a guesthouse  Very Good/No Jacket

The Cambrian Railways
Kidner, R. W.      
The Oakwood Press Oxford, England 1965 Edition: Reprint  Soft Cover 46 Pages with Black/White Photos - Cambrian Railways owned 230 miles (370 km) of track over a large area of mid-Wales. The system was an amalgamation of a number of railways that were incorporated in 1864, 1865 and 1904. The Cambrian connected with two of the larger railways to give connections to the North West of England, via the London and North Western Railway; and with the Great Western Railway for connections between London and North Wales. The Cambrian Railways amalgamated with the Great Western Railway on 1 January 1922 as a result of the Railways Act 1921. The name is continued today in the route known as the Cambrian Line.  Good/No Jacket

The Ashover Light Railway
Plant, K. P.      
The Oakwood Press Lingfield, Surrey, England 1965 Edition: First Edition  Soft Cover 88 Pages with Black/White Photos & Line Drawings - The Ashover Light Railway was a 1 ft 11 1/2 in (597 mm) narrow gauge railway in Derbyshire, England that connected Clay Cross and Ashover. It was built by the Clay Cross Company to transport minerals such as limestone, fluorite, barytes and gritstone to its works at Clay Cross and for transport around the country by the LMS. George Stephenson surveyed the route for the North Midland Railway between Derby and Leeds in the 1830s. The route passed close to Ashover where Stephenson saw the potential for the development of a colliery. He formed George Stephenson & Company in 1837 and built a colliery and coke ovens at Clay Cross which opened in 1840. The company passed to his son Robert Stephenson on George's death in 1848, and in 1852 he sold his shares, the business becoming the Clay Cross Company, which was at one time the largest independent employer in the UK. The company continued to develop its mining interests and in 1918 it purchased the Overton Estate at Fallgate with the aim of extracting minerals. An order under the Light Railways Act was obtained in 1918 to build a standard gauge railway between the Midland Railway station at Stretton and Ashover, with a 2 ft (610 mm) gauge rope-worked mineral railway serving Alton colliery. This railway was not built because the cost estimates were too high. Instead in 1920 H. F. Stephens, the consulting engineer for the line, proposed building the entire railway to 2 ft gauge. This considerably reduced the costs of construction and the plan was approved. Construction started in 1922 and the railway opened to goods traffic in 1924. The formal opening to passenger traffic took place in March 1925. The line was built using surplus equipment from the War Department Light Railways. Although the line was built principally to carry mineral traffic, its passenger service proved successful during the mid-1920s, but competition from buses saw numbers decline and Winter services ceased in 1934. All passenger services were withdrawn in 1936, but the four large bogie carriages built by Gloucester RC&W survived through WW2, and all ended up as stands on the Works bowling green. One was scrapped in 1960, two were moved to the Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway, and are numbered Nos 1 and 2. No 4 was moved to the Golden Valley Light Railway. By default, and with no proof, carriage No 3 was the one that was scrapped in 1960. The mineral traffic continued but the railway declined through the 1940s. In 1949 the railway's last remaining contract with Butts quarry was terminated and the quarry closed in 1950. The railway closed on 31 March 1950. Most of the rail remained in place through October of that year when a last inspection trip was made. After that the majority of the railway was lifted. However a short length was left in place around the Fallgate works. This remnant track continued to be used until 1968.  Good/No Jacket

Gerald Dee : The Life and Times of a Remarkable Railwayman
Fowler, John      
ISBN: 9781876568825
Eveleigh Press Matraville, NSW Australia 2015 Edition: First Edition  Soft Cover 160 pages 38 colour photos and 86 b/w photos - Captivated by the steam locomotive from infancy, Gerald joined the Victorian Railways in 1951 as a lad labourer, beginning a life-long railway career which transitioned from the steam era into modernisation. Attaining middle management, Gerald was widely acclaimed for his unique management style of recognising the wellbeing of the men as a priority. Within the thirteen chapters and appendix, Gerald's rich railway life experience is presented as a steam locomotive fireman, North Melbourne Loco, progression to driver, enginemen’s instructor, middle management in the office of Locomotive Running and Fuel Conservation. Written by John Fowler, who at one time fired with ‘Ger’, the book is presented in the style of first person narrative, interwoven with events of the time, allowing the reader to experience a vivid picture of Gerald's love of the railway, his footplate experiences and a career path toward management. The latter is no easy road for Gerald and offers surprises as he becomes caught up in the twists and turns of a railway continually attempting to reorganise into a modern management style. Of further interest to the modern day historian and modeller is the way in which Gerald became a major force in fostering the preservation of steam locomotives in Victoria, through his efforts in establishing the ARHS Vic. Division Railway Museum, conversion of Polly to Z526, and the saving of Heavy Harry and X36. In summary, this is an entertaining account of a railway career path that cannot be repeated today.  New/No Jacket

Saving Puffing Billy : The First Decade 1955 - 1965
Bourke, David ( Editor )      
ISBN: 9780646930787
Puffing Billy Preservation Society Belgrave, Victoria, Australia 2015 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 217 pages colour and b/w photos - The Puffing Billy Railway we know today is one of Australia’s top tourist attractions, with visitor numbers that are the envy of similar preserved railways around the world. Originally built, owned and operated by the Victorian Railways as part of the State’s railway system, the 18.2 mile [29.3 km] Upper Ferntree Gully to Gembrook line was always a scenic attraction to the people of Melbourne, who travelled on excursion trains for day trips and weekend holidays in the hills from the time of its original opening in 1900. The present-day success of Puffing Billy has evolved from the humble beginnings of its rescue by the Puffing Billy Preservation Society in mid-1955. The narrow gauge railway had outlived its usefulness as a general rail service to the hilly district through which it ran and it had been officially closed in 1954. Saving Puffing Billy is a fascinating story of public sentiment for the railway giving rise to the formation of the Puffing Billy Preservation Society in 1955 and the saga of rescuing the line from imminent scrapping; the restoration phase; the reopenings to Menzies Creek in 1962 and to Emerald in 1965 - all within the Society’s ‘First Decade 1955 - 1965’. This book of 200+ pages is based on extensive research and writing by PBPS member Bill Russell, enhanced by ‘human interest’ interviews with a representative number of long-standing Society members. Well illustrated with 300+ photos and other graphic items, most of them in colour, the book is being produced as a high quality, hard cover work that will be a ‘must’ for anyone who has an interest in Puffing Billy, historic railways and their preservation generally.  New/No Jacket

End of the Line : A History of the Beech Forest to Crowes Extension Railway 1911 - 1962
Houghton, Norman      
ISBN: 9780959301373
Norman Houghton Geelong, Victoria, Australia 2011 Edition: First Edition  Soft Cover 54 pages b/w photos - The Otway Ranges in Victoria’s south west region were virtually impenetrable and of little economic value to the Colony until the 1870s when the railway era arrived. The Ranges were encircled or driven into by the Geelong to Colac railway (1877), the Moriac to Wensleydale railway (1890), the Birregurra to Forrest railway (1891), the Camperdown to Timboon railway (1892) and the Colac to Beech Forest (1902) and Crowes railway (1911). The railways provided the first all-weather, fast and reliable transport services into a area characterised by dense timber and high rainfall and enabled closer settlement and timber winning to begin on a systematic scale. The Colac to Crowes railway differed from the others in that it was a 2ft 6 in (762 mm) gauge line specifically designed for rugged terrain. Construction of the Beech Forest railway began in 1900 and the 47.7 kms length of rails reached the terminus in March 1902. Further agitation by settlers along the Ridge and to the west as far as Princetown resulted in the railway being extended from Beech Forest to Crowes. This 22.5 kms extension was built from 1909 to 1911. The Beech Forest railway was an immediate success. It provided a fast, convenient, all weather means of access between Colac and the forest and facilitated the development of the region.  New/No Jacket

Running Out of Steam & Catching Up with Diesels
Burke, David      
ISBN: 9780648043928
Rosenberg Publishing NSW, Australia 2017 Edition: First Edition  Soft Cover 194 Pages of Colour Pictures. Across Australia, one hundred thousand men and women were 'in the railways'. From power houses to poultry farms, laundries to loco sheds, wheelbarrows to workshops, snow resorts to signal boxes, the railway had it all. From lumps of iron, men hammered out a mighty locomotive. Skilled craftsmen shaped first class carriages for the rich. Day and night, from Katoomba to Kalgoorlie, Mount Gambier to Mount Isa, the rhythm of rolling wheel on silvery rail was never silent. For much of this time, steam was the inseparable of Australia's railways on the move. By the turn of the century the railway scene had utterly changed. Steam, mostly, was but a fond memory. New motive power had taken command of the tracks and trains. For Australia's railways the diesel-electric locomotive was the key to survival - and the future. Author Melbourne-born David Burke began his newspaper career on the Herald-Sun later moving to the Sydney Morning Herald and its associated publications. He has written 30 books covering fact and fiction, some relating to railways (where he once worked). 30 Days on Australia's Railways was his previous railway book published in 2014 by Rosenberg. His adventure novel set on Victoria's narrow gauge Puffing Billy was made by the ABC into a seven episode TV serial and Come Midnight Monday enjoyed international release.  New/No Jacket

Victorian Railways D3 Class 4-6-0 Locomotive : A Photographic Profile
Crow, Lindsay & McLean, Don      
ISBN: 9781921122354
Train Hobby Publications Australia Pinewood Victoria Australia 2011 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 56 pages profusely illustrated colour photos - The D3 class started out life as the DD class, 261 of which were built from 1902 to 1921. The original saturated design was found to have some shortcomings, so commencing in 1914, various members of the class were converted to superheated design. In 1929, renumbering and reclassification took place, with the saturated locos being known as the D1 class, and the superheated locos the D2 class. Further alterations in 1929 took place, with 94 of the D2 class being further rebuilt with larger boilers, and these became the D3 class. They were remarkably versatile locos, being used not only for shunting and light branch line work, but also for the occasional rostered main duty as well. They were capable of hard work, and speeds up to 80mph, and were quite popular with crews. Loco DD980 was chosen to become the Commissioner's Loco, used for inspection touring of the Victorian rail network by the Railways Commissioner from 1916 onwards. This loco was rebuilt and renumbered to D3-639 in 1929, and was scrapped in 1958. However, the concept was too popular to be scrapped, and sister loco 658 was restored and renumbered as the second D3-639 in the early 60s, and today, this loco is retained for preservation running.  As New/No Jacket
