This is James Waite’s second book for Pen & Sword about narrow gauge railways. He has travelled extensively in search of interesting, and often obscure, railways in remote locations.

His previous book looked at the narrow gauge scene around the world and how many of its historic railways were surviving in the twenty first century. This new volume looks at some of them in greater detail and uses much hitherto unpublished material.

The book is full of attractive and rarely seen photos. Some of them depict railways that were in their last days of everyday use, while others show heritage operations which still look much as they did when the trains were running commercially.

"At one level this is a coffee table book to delve into occasionally. However, it is more than that, with the detailed captions accompanying the Photographs giving valuable insight into the history and development of the lines and locomotives depicted, and in some cases of the people involved. The cover price may look a little on the high side, but we are talking of over 300 high quality colour images, and there is much of interest and much to enjoy"

Friends of the NRM Review No. 179 Spring 2022

"This is one of those coffee-table books that is enjoyable to simply peruse, whiling away the long and cold winter nights."

Narrow Gauge World Magazine - No 162

"Excellent book by an author who knows his subject and details narrow gauge railways around the world".

Vintage Spirit - May 2022

"Put simply, another excellent selection of high quality railway photographs which happen to show steam locos on narrow gauge lines. Enjoy!"

Continental Modeller - November 2021

This book is quite a gem. Thoroughly recommended.
