Welsh Highland Railway Renaissance - The Story of the Restoration of the Welsh Highland Railway - 1991 to 2011
by Gordon Rushton

This is the truly astonishing story of the return from dereliction of the 25 mile long Welsh Highland Railway, now running with African Beyer-Garratts and ten-car trains full of people, to make a 40 mile 2ft gauge railway when joined with its parent, the Ffestiniog Railway.

This story is one of strife, scandal, and outrage, that gradually turned to determination, innovation, and success.

It has 448 pages of unique maps, fascinating photographs, beautiful technical drawings, connected with interesting prose, all given credibility by people's personal accounts.

Three years in the writing, the book is unmissable for anyone who loves the narrow gauge - it is a book that you simply have to have!
