Description

Michael Messenger, sb, 96 pages, 129 illustrations, many in colour

The surviving slate quarries of North Wales were remarkable places in the 1960s. Their working methods and their railways especially were from an earlier age and their days were numbered. Michael Messenger visited the area just in time and was able to visit the major working slate quarries in the counties of Caernarfon and Merioneth. His photographs capture the essence of these distinctive narrow gauge railways that delved deep into the mountains of Snowdonia. Wagons with double-flanged wheels, mixed-gauge stub points, precipitous inclines as well as steam and diesel locomotives are included. Most of the 123 photographs, a third in colour, have not been published before. (Michael Messenger)
