Fairlie Locomotives of North Wales


Highly praised, and deservedly so, this book describes the development of the Double and Single Fairlie locomotive on the Ffestiniog Railway and its associated companies, from the Little Wonder of 1869 up to the present day.

The detail is extraordinary, covering the whole life of each locomotive, its rebuilds, modifications and such, and includes eighteen fold-out 7mm scale drawings of each one.

Plus there is considerable background information on the history of the railway, traffic over the years, other contemporary articulated locomotives, the locomotive trials of 1870, an engineering view and a footplate one, liveries, valve gears etc.

An absolute feast of delights, crammed with archive and colour photographs, drawings, map and tables. 318 pages. Hardbound.

"My copy of 'Fairlie Locomotives of North Wales' arrived today. Beautiful! I am really chuffed!"    Mr. J.F.    USA
