Alun John Richards, A5, SB, 21232 black-and-white photographs and 14 maps.pp,

Starting with the Penirhyn Railway of 1801, this book traces the chronology of slate related railways and tramways throughout Wales. Some lines arose out of need, others out of greed until in all about 100 route miles were dedicated to carrying slate with a further 200 miles vying to do so with varying success. Apart from enabling a great industry to prosper they brought benefits of rail connections to the remotest part of Wales many of which would have been ignored by railway entrepreneurs
