Industrial Locomotives & Railways of Cumbria, Paperback / softback Book

Industrial Locomotives & Railways of Cumbria Paperback / softback

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.
