Llanelly West to Carmarthen is the latest addition to an ongoing series about railways in West Wales, by railway historian John Hodge.

This volume looks at the history of the lines in West Wales, between these locations, taking in the history of the local industry that was once a feature in this area.

This book covers each station and main locations along the route, with good photographic coverage and interesting long captions explaining the locations' significance.

The work is of interest to railway historians and those who accurately model railways, having a good coverage of the subject throughout its pages.

Narrative summaries of each of the major locations are provided, but the real strength of the book lies in the several hundred photographs which the author has brought together. These include the huge and diverse range of steam motive power to be found at Carmarthen shed over the years, a fine selection of views of Carmarthen station itself, everyday and special trains passing through rural and often highly scenic locations, and useful views of the intermediate stations and signal boxes which will be particularly valuable to the modeller and historian.

This is another well recommended title from Pen & Sword.

About John Hodge

The late John Hodge was a former railwayman, who started his working life on the Western Region in South Wales in 1961, later transferring to London Paddington and British Railways Board. He was brought up in Barry, a port town west of Cardiff, which has strong railway connections, once being an important port for coal traffic and later being famous for Woodham Brothers scrap yard, and which held over 200 locomotives that are now mostly preserved on heritage lines. John was a lifelong railway enthusiast and historian, with many railway histories published.
