Great Railway Eras

Festiniog in the Sixties

by Vic Mitchell & Allan Garraway

The early sixties were critical for the survival of the then recently revived railway. There are many views behind the scenes of the fight for life of the line in those delicate years. During this era Vic Mitchell was a Society director whilst Allan Garraway had to keep the trains running. Both were well aware of the problems; many of the solutions are illustrated in this volume.
