The Rye and Camber Tramway

Regular price £17.95

A comprehensive history of this 3 foot gauge light railway that connected Rye (Sussex) with Camber Sands. The Rye and Camber was part of the celebrated "Colonel Stephens" group of light railways and operated from 1895 up to the beginning of World War 2. Exclusively a passenger carrying line, its motive power was two attractive Bagnall tanks, replaced in later years by a petrol tractor. This centenary history gives the full story of its turbulent life and untimely demise, plus newly discovered facts about its service after 'closure' in the defence of the realm. Comprehensively illustrated with many 'new' photographs, plus track plans and scale drawings.

Hardback with dust jacket, 160 pages, black & white illustrations

ISBN: 9781871980301
