Your choice of delivery:

This volume makes an important contribution to local history, as it includes so much of the former heavy industry of the area. The vast mileage of the sidings serving collieries and steel works is impressively illustrated and also detailed on maps. The great variety of traffic by rail to and from Newport Docks is portrayed dramatically, before commencing our armchair journey inland and up 1400ft. to the highest station on BR in Wales.
