A North Wales Railway Travelogue by Donald Peddie
Lightmoor press 2008 £10
Donald Peddie's late father Ian, on family holidays to various of the North Wales coast resorts in the late 1950s and early 1960s, captured the early days of Welsh narrow gauge railway preservation, along with some of the other narrow gauge systems which were still commercially operational: the various quarry systems such as Bethesda, Dinorwic, Pen-yr-orsedd and Penrhyn. However, having a Scottish Region lineside photographic pass, it was not too difficult to make arrangements to visit standard gauge lines and sites, including the locomotive depots at Llandudno Junction, Aberystwyth and Machynlleth. Other standard gauge locations covered include Afon Wen Junction and the Cambrian line around Criccieth.
