Great Little Trains of Wales

Some brief overview of book

The Great Little Trains of Wales are a very special way of seeing some of the best scenery in the British Isles. All are narrow gauge steam railways and some have a history spanning well over 100 years. All of them have in common the charm of old-time steam trains with plenty of polished paintwork and brass.

Built in a time less hasty than our own, most originally served to carry Welsh slate from the quarries to the sea. However, no two are the same and they all offer a unique experience of a bygone era. The special attraction of narrow gauge railways lies in their modest size compared with the main line ones and their leisurely speed gives time to take in some of the splendid scenery.

Lavishly Illustrated in the style of the rail travel posters of the mid 1900s and with all embracing text, the book allows the reader to savour the hidden gems of the Great Little Trains of Wales. It was lovely to be asked to write the foreword to John Bailey's latest book and what a perfect travelling companion it is. It can be used as a guide to the railways as you travel or simply as a way of learning more about this beautiful eclectic mix of railways.

The Great Little Trains of Wales exist for people to enjoy and this book will certainly further enhance people's experience of them. Enjoy the read. Chris Price Chairman of the Great Little Trains of Wales.
