Industrial Locomotives & Railways of Cumbria Paperback
by Gordon Edgar
Part of the Industrial Locomotives & Railways of ... series
The industrial and minor railways of the former counties of Cumberland and Westmorland are neglected topics deserving of greater attention.
West Cumberland has traditionally been a mining, steel-making and quarrying region, with some areas of rail-served industry surviving today.
Standard and narrow gauge railways and their locomotives have supported these industries for over a century, a small number even surviving into the twenty-first century. Gordon Edgar uses his excellent collection of photographs to explore these fascinating railways and their locomotives.
