James Waite has been a skilled railway photographer for many years. In this book he has brought together photographs of many of the world’s steam-worked narrow gauge railways in the twenty-first century, concentrating mostly on views which show the scenery, both natural and man-made, through which they ran. They are accompanied by extended captions; the fruit of extensive research containing much historical information about the railways and their locos. He also offers many fascinating insights into the districts and communities which they serve, along with anecdotes about his adventures while visiting them which are often amusing and always informative.
The quality of the photographs in this book are excellent, very good value and thoroughly recommended.Ffestiniog Railway Magazine

The pictures in the book show a practiced eye for composition and by no way are just three quarter views of the train, this is very much a book featuring the train in the landscape where foreground interest has been included and enhanced what was already an excellent picture.Bradford Railway Circle
In summary an excellent book for anyone with an interest in twenty first century narrow gauge around the world.
This substantial new book brings together an excellent selection of high quality photographs of many of the world’s steam-worked narrow gauge railways which have survived into the twenty-first century.Railway Modeller & Continental Modeller, August 2019
The visuals consist of 329 wonderful color photographs each more striking. Each of them could give rise to a new book... Impressive.Miniaturas JM
