Details

The 1896 Light Railways Act led to a two-decade boom in new rail lines that relied on cheaper, less resilient materials and slower speeds than existing routes. This reissue of a classic 1985 book, extensively illustrated with images of lost lines and stations, details the way that light railways filled gaps in the rail network before post-war competition from roads led to their decline.
