The Mawddwy, Van & Kerry Branches

Regular price £16.95

Lewis Cozens began his series of booklets on minor railways in the 1940s and 1950s, and had become assiduous in searching local and county records. In 1972, Oakwood published an edition of his three Cambrian booklets in one volume. Some 30 years later, Roger Kidner revised and updated the text. The story was brought to life by the stories and tales that Brian Poole was able to collect from those who knew the three lines well. Each of these lines had its own character: Mawddwy served the slate quarries; Van served the lead mines; and Kerry carried quantities of timber, served brickworks, and struggled to cope with the large influx of traffic generated by the annual Kerry sheep fair. Powys contains many abandoned railways, there is something haunting about them, the ghosts of services past. Of all these, the Mawddwy, Van and Kerry were the first to expire. The collection of the local communities' reminiscences of these lines ensures that they will not be forgotten.

Presented in A5 format, it contains 240 pages, and 180 illustrations, including photographs, plans and maps. It has a laminated card cover with a square-backed spine.
