Narrow Gauge

Surrey Narrow Gauge

including South London

by Vic Mitchell & Keith Smith

The county had a remarkable number of small industrial railways, usually hidden from view. Many of these fascinating lines are included in this volume, along with the long closed Brockham Museum and the flourishing Old Kiln Museum, near Farnham. South London also yields some of its secrets.
