This book has 400 pages and completes our coverage of South Wales (see also West Glamorgan and Mid & South Glamorgan), including 23 pages of full colour maps.
Although a large part of this area is agricultural land there were many centres of heavy engineering which were users of industrial locomotives. Pockets of such activity still remain such as the steelworks at Llanwern.
It covers locations around Newport, Chepstow, Risca, Abercarn, Aberbeeg, the Sirhowy Valley, Ebbw Vale, Abertillery and Cwmbran.
The book contains a comprehensive selection of 80 interesting black and white photographs.
