Narrow Gauge

Branch Lines around Porthmadog 1954-94

by Vic Mitchell & Keith Smith

This album is intended to illustrate the changes that have taken place in recent years on a railway that pioneered narrow gauge technology, led the world in its application and then slowly died. Many stages in its resuscitation are shown, as are the features which have helped to put it amongst the top tourist meccas in Wales.
