This book is Volume 2 in the British Railway History In Colour series. The Severn & Wye and Forest of Dean tramroads are amongst the earliest lines established in Great Britain. Originally horse drawn for carrying freight from the many mines in the area, they were converted into railways and later passenger services, which only lasted about 50 years, were introduced. This book illustrates the history of these lines up until closure as well the various collieries, docks and works which were served by these railways.

Widely acclaimed for running independent light railways Colonel Stephens was also a pioneer of internal combustion to economise in their operation. Some of his railways came to rely on these vehicles to maintain their services in the 1920s and 1930s. Stephens overcame a chronic lack of capital and limited early technology resulting in vehicles that were innovative, but flawed but also moderately successful and certainly full of character. This is their story.
