More Confessions of a Narrow–Minded Enthusiast with Colin Brading
With a gauge of 18” and
above, the world famous Great Little Trains of Wales offer charm, history and
scenic splendour in abundance. These feature prominently as we
travel widely around the British Isles in search of all that is narrow!
From the days when steam replaced horse power in slate quarries to the
modern heritage scene in which long lost lines are being painstakingly rebuilt,
this is the story of how the narrow gauge in its many guises has moved
people and goods, in peace and in war, for 150 years - and how it
continues to thrive.
