This volume brings together the memories of some of those who visited the world famous two-foot gauge line during its closure period. It also contains a variety of stories of the initial revival work, many of which have not been recorded before. Numerous unpublished and fascinating photographs of the era are included to bring to life these unusual accounts.

 

Reviews:

'This gem of a book tells the story of many of those pioneers who strived to get the railway open... The pioneers telling their stories include Alan Garraway, Alan Pegler, Bill Broadbent and Norman Gurley who, with the two authors, help form an important piece of the social history of this famous line.'
(The Railway Magazine, September 2009)
