Brand New Book
From the rear side cover: Although nothing of significance remains of it today, the Swansea Vale Railway was a major factor in the life of the Swansea Valley, Cwmtwrch and Brynamman for well over 100 years. Originally an independent concern, it was taken over by the Midland Railway and hence linked through to the rest of the UK via Brecon. This lavishly illustrated book, a considerably enlarged version of an earlier volume published in 2004, tells the story of the railway, its employees and passengers, and contains many new maps, along with a large number of new previously unpublished pictures.
The book is illustrated throughout with lots of black and white photographs and maps
