The Liskeard and Looe Branch
Beale, Gerry      
ISBN: 187410347X
Wild Swan Publications Oxford, England 2000 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 218 pages b/w photos - The Liskeard and Looe branch has its origins in a canal built to bring fertilisers to the agricultural lands of this part of East Cornwall. By the 1850s a railway had been constructed to exploit the fabulously wealthy copper mines on Caradon Hill and to allow the ore to be removed by the canal. In due course, the canal was itself replaced by a railway which, built to the standard gauge, was entirely separated from the broad gauge Cornwall Railway. The independent railway existed in ever more impecunious circumstances until the end of the 19th century when moves were made to connect with the rest of Britain's railway system. With new locomotives and coaches, and connected to the outside world, the railway entered the 20th century with great optimism. Within a few years, through, financial problems brought an increasing reliance on its larger neighbour, the Great Western Railway. In 1909 this alliance was formalised when the two companies entered into a working agreement, whilst in 1922 the GWR took over the local company in its entirety. The book details the development of the Liskeard and Looe branch from the time of the working agreement, through the period of GWR ownership and into the era of the nationalised railway system when the line became part of the British Railways (Western Region). The text is based on much original research, using many company documents held in record offices and in private hands, but also leans on the recollections of the railwaymen who worked on the line in its postwar heyday. Due no doubt to its fascinating history, its unusual working practices and its location in a popular holiday area, the line was well recorded by many of the leading railway cameramen and the book is illustrated with a wealth of attractive photographs.  Very Good

Country Branch Line an Intimate Portrait of the Watlington Branch - Volume One - The Story of the Line from 1872 to 1961
Karau, Paul & Turner, Chris      
ISBN: 1874103437
Wild Swan Magazines Didcot, Berks., England 1998 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 248 pages The Wallingford branch was the first stage of an 1861 scheme that would have linked the GWR main line with the Wycombe Extension Railway, then under construction. It was to have left the main line at Cholsey and continue through Wallingford, Benson and Watlington to join the Wycombe line at Princes Risborough, but the full scheme failed to materialise. The resulting branch line floundered under the independant company who, after only 6.5 years, sold out to the GWR in 1872. Fate was kind, however and both passenger and goods traffic later prospered, the branch eventually proving a valuable asset to its new owners. With the post war advance of private motoring, passenger services only lasted until 1959, buts goods traffic survived another 6 years an the line itself even until 1981, albeit only to serve a private siding. There was nothing remarkable about the branch, which perhaps lacked the romantic image of some of its more popular counterparts, yet it served the community well with an intensive service ferrying passengers across rustic pastures, through breaks in the hedgerows and over tiny watercourses shaded by willows, to reach the main line, all through an age when railways were the prime mode of transport. This ground-breaking branch line history - the most ambitious we've yet published - chronicles the history and life of the Watlington branch. Running unobtrusively through 9 miles of beautiful Chiltern countryside, it linked Princes Risborough in Buckinghamshire to the small town of Watlington in Oxfordshire. Bypassed by all important routes, the people of Watlington hoped that a railway connecting it to the Wycombe line and thus to London and the rest of the country, would bring about a reversal in the town's fortunes.The townspeople were to be sorely disappointed for neither Watlington nor its railway was ever to have a heyday. But that is much of the charm of the place, and it is the quietness, the slowness and the almost storybook nature of the railway that attracted the authors of this fascinating and absorbing book to spend many years researching it. From its opening in 1872 through its very mean years under private ownership, and rebirth under the Great Western, to its closure in 1957, the history of the line is traced in considerable detail, but this is no ordinary railway text.The authors believe in their approach that railway history is not just to do with facts, dates and locomotive classes, but it is also about the people who worked on and used the line, and this account relies very heavily upon lengthy interviews with the former stafi and local people.Throughout the book the characters shine through, making it a compelling and most enjoyable read. Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of wonderful photographs, this definitive history of one of Britain's most appealing lines should not be missed by anyone interested in railways, local history or in the way things used to be.  As New

Narrow Gauge Railway Modelling
Kazer, Peter      
ISBN: 1874103682
Wild Swan Publications Oxon, England 2001 Edition: First Edition  Soft Cover 124 pages b/w photos - Narrow gauge modelling has become popular in the last few decades, offering a wide range of prototypes, all with their unique character and ways of going about things. Many of Britains narrow gauge railways served the community, not the timetable! In this book Peter Kazer presents a breif guide to the Britiah narrow gauge, from the passenger and slate railways of Wales to the quarry lines of industry. As with many other similar books a range of topics are covered which are applicable to any scale and gauge, but Peter focuses on narrow gauge for the rolling stock and locomotives. This itself gives rise to a specilisation in buildings, bridges and infrastructure. The very details which give the narrow gauge a unique appeal.   Very Good/No Jacket

Wild Swan Publications Didcot, Berks, England 1991 Edition: First Edition  Soft Cover 110 pages b/w photos - A 1991 publication guiding the railway modeller through the techniques in building and laying fine scale track instead of purchasing ready made.

Cottage Modelling for Pendon
Pilton, Chris      
ISBN: 0906867576
Wild Swan Publications Didcot, Berks, England 1987 Edition: First Edition  Soft Cover 92 pages b/w photos - The sequence of the book largely follows the order in which I tackle each project, from the initial study stage to the final weathering, taking in descriptions of the time-consuming and patience-testing jobs that are associated with modelling "the Pendon way" : painting individual bricks, sticking on small strips of paper tiles, etc. I am aware that the very thought of painting individual bricks of 1mm high and 3mm long may be offputting to many people, but if you are not over-ambitious in trying to model a whole village to this standard but concentrate your efforts on one building at a time, you may be surprised to find that a "Pendon style" cottage is possible within a reasonable time and perhaps agree that the effort can be well rewarding.  Very Good/No Jacket

George Stephenson : The Remarkable Life of the Founder of the Railways
Davies, Hunter      
ISBN: 0600200426
Hamlyn Books London, England 1980 Edition: Reprint  Soft Cover 335 pages b/w photos - Much is known about the achievements of George Stephenson and of his infamous creation, the Rocket, yet little is known of the man himself. This volume is a profile of the self-taught and often testy Geordie, whose Victorian invention is now the backbone of every nation on the planet. George was born in Wylam, Northumberland, 9.3 miles (15.0 km) west of Newcastle upon Tyne. He was the second child of a working class family Robert and Mabel. Both his parents were illiterate and they did not have enough money to send George to school. However, George was keen to get an education and so devoted his evenings to learning to read and write. At the age of 17, he entered a coal mine, working as an engineer in Water Row pit, Newburn. He later got jobs as a brakesman in different North east pits around the area of Newcastle. He gained a reputation as an excellent engineer and impressed with his ability to fix a pumping engine at High Pit, Killingworth in 1811. In particular he became an expert in steam-driven engineering. His knowledge was essentially practical, learning through trial and error, rather than through theoretical science. His common sense, and willingness to experiment led him to develop a miner’s safety lamp in 1818. At the time, many explosions were caused by naked flames. And the Royal Society had offered a large reward for a successful lamp. George invented his version of the safety lamp around the same time as Sir Humphrey Davy. Davy was convinced that Stephenson had copied his idea. Though this was never proved. It may have been the fact that Davy didn’t trust a largely uneducated miner to develop a lamp without the science Davy had used.  Fair/No Jacket

Lagos Steam Tramway 1902 - 1933
Miller, Nevil      
W J Fowler & Son London, England 1958 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 30 pages b/w photos - red boards - gilt title - owners name neatly on fep - In 1895 the Lagos Government Railway began to force its way from Iddo, on the mainland, to Ibadan, and was opened six years later on March 4, 1901. Carter Bridge was completed the same year, construction having commenced in 1896, to connect Lagos with the mainland. Because of the mistake of terminating the railway at Iddo, Lagos, the administrative capital and port of the Colony of Nigeria, was without any public (or indeed, at that time, wheeled) transport to connect it with the railhead. That this had been in the minds of the Administration is evidenced by mention of a tramway in the Colonial Report for 1899. By 1901 it had been decided to build a 2ft. 6in.-gauge line over Carter Bridge and construction commenced. The opening of the Lagos Steam Tramway took place on May 23, 1902. The original line ran north-west along the waterfront, from a point near Government House and the European residential area around the Race course, to Customs Wharf, where it turned north-east towards Ereko Market and Idumata. A 95ft,-radius curve took the line north-westwards again, through Ebute Ero and over Carter bridge to the railway station at Iddo.There was a run-in outside the station building, a short siding to the parcels office, sidings to the goods transit shed, five roads into the engine and car sheds and a run-round which encircled these sheds. The track was single, with seven passing loops en route. At the Post Office there was a double junction incorporated with the passing loop, connection to the Public Works Department stores, and a straight run-through from the PWD wharf to the generating station for direct coal transfer. At Kokomaiko, the terminus, there was a run-round siding, a 20ft.-diameter turntable, and a water tank. The sleeping track was of 2ft. 6in. gauge with a route mileage of 2 miles 58 chains, partly laid on (not in) the streets and partly on roadside reservations. The running time was 21 minutes, giving an average speed of 7 3/4 mph. Fares were 3d. "all the way", PWD to Iddo 2d., and Ereko Market to Iddo, 1d. The headway was 45 min., later improved to 30 min., with the first tram at 6.30 hr. to connect with the 7.00 hr. mainline train from Iddo to Ibadan. There was no running after dark (this timed the last tram at about 19.00 hr.) Freight services were operated 0 it was, in fact, the only link at this time between Customs Wharf for moving imports up-country and for evacuating produce from railhead to lighter. The tramway was operated by the Lagos Government Railway. Rolling stock consisted of ten passenger trailers with longitudinal back-to-back seats, built by the Ashbury Railway Carriage & Wagon Company, of Manchester. They were 19ft. long by 7ft. 2in. wide, double ended and fitted with tramcar-type hand brakes. The bodies were constructed from tubes, with open sides and canvas screens for wet weather. The cars were four-wheeled, the axle-boxes being provided with coil springs. There were about 20 un-braked goods wagon, each 12 ft. long and 5ft. 6in. wide, all made by the same company. Motive power was originally provided by three locomotives of a type unique among street tramway engines. They were designed by the Crown Agents for the Colonies and manufactured by the Hunslet Engine Co. Ltd., of Leeds, bearing maker's Nos. 751-3, and LGR Nos. 101-3. Delivery was made in September 1901   Good/No Jacket

Frank Hornby’s Railway Dairy 1952 - 59 : A Personal Record of Railway Jhourneys and Observations
Hornby, Frank      
ISBN: 9781857943320
Silver Link Publishing United Kingdom 2009 Edition: First Edition  Soft Cover 128 pages b/w photos - A railway enthusiast from the age of 5, Frank Hornby started loco-spotting while at school, and began to travel around the UK by train from about 1941. Since that time he has kept copious diaries of all his travels - dates, times, routes taken, depots visited and locomotives and trains observed. Full of fascinating detail, these diaries now number many volumes, and are still being kept by octogenarian Frank to the present day. Silver Link asked Frank to make a selection from his many journeys during the 1950s, and the result is this unique first-hand record of British and Irish railways during that decade, long before the Beeching era changed everything for ever, when a staggering variety of motive power was there to be seen, and many hundreds of miles of railway, since lost, were there to be travelled. Setting out from his home in South London, Frank describes visits to the West Country and Wales, the Midlands and East Anglia, Scotland and Ireland, the diary entries are supported by more than 125 photographs taken by him during those trips.  Very Good/No Jacket

Australian Railway Historical Society (QLD) Brisbane, Queensland, Australia 2011 Edition: First Edition  Soft Cover 144 pages colour and b/w photos - with companion CD-Rom - For nearly 100 years, Queensland's Government railways have provided many of their passenger services with Rail Motors or their successors, Railcars and Tilt trains. In the early years these vehicles enabled the economy of relatively cheap construction cost, low running cost and minimal crew costs. Many of the services provided would not have been possible if a conventional locomotive hauled train had to be run. They provided suburban passenger services in Brisbane, in Toowoomba for a time and in Townsville and Cairns for many years. Many Queenslanders travelled to school on Rail Motors and many do so today on electric trains   New/No Jacket

Shale & Shays: The Fight for Shale Oil from the Wolgan Valley
Longdon, Mark      
Eveleigh Press Matraville, NSW Australia 2017 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 300 Pages with Black & White Photos and Drawings. Mark Langdon, an upper Blue Mountains resident and trained historian, presents a fresh look at the exhilarating shale-oil mining days of 1906 – 1932 in the Wolgan Valley in New South Wales. Researched from existing company and government documentation and newspaper reports of the day, the book begins with the story of the Commonwealth Oil Corporation’s (C.O.C.) inception, financed and run from the London offices, continues through the building of the works at Newnes and the railway to Newnes Junction, and rounds out with the final days in the 1930s, when the fate of Newnes resided in the hands of the Commonwealth Government and National Oil Pty Ltd. The work includes the decline of the C.O.C. and John Fell’s becoming the owner. The problems faced are covered in detail, as is the lives of the miners and residents living in the valley. Special attention has been given to the railway – locomotives and rolling stock – including exhaustive research detailing the building and use of the railway that carried the precious shale and oil to the main N.S.W.G.R. Western Line at Newnes Junction and then on to Torbane in the west and to the Sydney export seaboard. Each vehicle type built specifically for and purchased by the C.O.C. is covered, with a history and photos and a scale drawing of each vehicle type included. The work is rounded out with superb maps and a Phil Belbin painting.  New/New

The Phoenix Foundry : Locomotive Builders of Ballarat - The History of A Ballarat Engineering Company
Butrims, Robert & MacArtney, David      
ISBN: 9780646904023
Australian Railway Historical Society (VIC) Melbourne, Australia 2013 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 224 pages b/w photos - The Phoenix Foundry was a company that built steam locomotives and other industrial machinery in the city of Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. Over 30 years they built 352 locomotives for the Victorian Railways, of 38 different designs. The Phoenix Foundry was established in 1854 to build mining machinery and was incorporated as the Phoenix Foundry Co. Ltd. in 1870. It was founded by ironfounder William Shaw, moulder Robert Holden, and enginesmiths Robert Carter and George Threlfell. The business prospered and by November 1861 employed 96 men producing a wide range of products. From around 1858 the employees were working eight hour days while doing as much work as Englishmen did in ten hours. In August 1871 the foundry successfully tendered for the first Victorian Government railway locomotive contracts, with the first one delivered on 27 February 1873, and by 1884 over 350 men were employed. Modernisation of the works was carried out after Shaw visited Britain in 1871 and 1885, becoming the most advanced workshops in the southern hemisphere. The hundredth locomotive was completed in April 1883, the two hundredth completed by October 1887. The majority of locomotives built were duplicates of imported 'pattern engines' designed and built overseas by other companies. Issues arose in 1889 when Shaw attempted to enforce a non-union shop resulting in conflict with employees. Further trouble arose the foundry's relationships with the Victorian Railways, with a tender war erupting between Phoenix and the VR Newport Workshops for the construction of the Dd class 4-6-0 light line locomotives. A Royal Commission was appointed in October 1904 to resolve the question of the 'real costs' of production. The Commission found in favour of Newport, who could produce a locomotive for £3,364 - some £497 cheaper than Phoenix's cost, and that Phoenix was making a 23 percent profit on each locomotive. Phoenix received no further orders beyond the seven members of the Dd class which were delivered in 1904. The works lasted another year until the directors entered voluntary liquidation.   New/New

It provides a fascinating window onto the Australian cane tramway of the 1960s, set in a tropical paradise. Motive power is mainly diesel-hydraulic 0-6-0s from Clyde Engineering in Sydney and operating practices mirror those of Queensland four decades ago. This all-colour album showcases the Clyde diesels amongst the cane fields and forests of Fiji between 2005 and 2009. Rail transport in Fiji exists to move cut sugar cane to crushing mills. There used to be two horse-drawn street tramway systems, some other passenger systems, an underground mine system and some tramways on construction projects. Tramways have been used to transport sugar cane from the fields to the mill since 1876 when a 2.4-kilometre (1.5 mi) horse tramway was constructed on the Selia Levu estate on the island of Taveuni. The Holmhurst Mill on Tavenui had tramways from 1882 of 762 mm (2 ft 6 in) gauge. A tramway was also built on Mago Island. Most cane tramways were of 610 mm (2 ft) gauge, on the main islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu. Steam engines were used, later replaced with diesel engines. Most of the mills and tramways were built by the Colonial Sugar Refining Company (CSR), an Australian-owned company, and transferred to the Fiji Sugar Corporation in 1973, when CSR withdrew from Fiji.Many lines were on road reserve provided by the government, and combined road-rail bridges were common. Some passenger services were provided, such as the famous Free Train from 1915, with one or two trains a week from Lautoka to Kavanagasau and Rarawai on the Rarawai - Kavanagasau Light Railway. In 1988 there were 645 kilometres (401 mi) of permanent cane railway in Fiji, for the Lautoka and Rarawai, and Penang mills on Viti Levu, and the Labasa Mill on Vanua Levu.  New/No Jacket

North Road Locomotive Works Darlington 1863 - 1966
Hoole, Kenneth      
Roundhouse Books Hatch End, Middlesex, England 1967 Edition: First Edition  Hard Cover 102 pages b/w photos - Darlington railway works, known in the town as North Road Shops, was built in 1863 by the Stockton and Darlington Railway in the town of Darlington in the north east of England. The first new locomotive was built at the works in 1864. Though the railway had amalgamated with the North Eastern Railway (NER) in 1863, it continued to build its own designs for a number of years. In 1877 the first North Eastern designs appeared. In 1914 a class of NER Bo+Bo electric locomotives were built at the works to run between Shildon and Newport. Ten of these 1500 volt direct current locomotives were completed. Sir Vincent Raven designed the NER Class T2 0-8-0 freight locomotive in 1913, and by 1921 the works had built 120 of the engines, which were later designated Q6 by the LNER. The heavier and more powerful Raven NER Class T3 0-8-0 (LNER Q7) followed in 1919, 15 engines being completed by 1924. Under the LNER it continued to play a major role, producing a new engine each week, with Gresley's K3 class 2-6-0 appearing in 1924. Both the class V2 and A1 express locomotives were also built. By 1927 the works was the town's largest employer. Darlington works built six LNER Class K4 2-6-0 locomotives in 1937/38 for operation on the West Highland Line. No. 3442 (later 61994) The Great Marquess has been preserved in full working order and in 2009 was still hauling special steam trains on the UK main line network. After nationalisation, Darlington built both steam and diesel locomotives, including BR standard class 2. The equivalent of the LNER Class E1 0-6-0 tank locomotive had been built, virtually unchanged since 1898. In 1954 during the modernisation of British Railways the works was enlarged, but in 1962 the BR Workshops Division was formed and, with the rationalisation the works was run down and closed in 1966.  Very Good/Good
