Author Robin Jones tells the story the classic British Narrow Gauge Lines. Their purpose – to take trains through upland regions where normal sized railways would be too costly to build. How they negotiate difficult terrain in a comparatively cheap and cost effective manner.

Britain’s Weirdest Railway’s
Author Robin Jones sets out to discover the extreme versions of the railway concept, the weird and wonderful guises in which it has manifested itself. Feature articles include –
How the Lincolnshire coast was home to Britain’s only prison railway used by Borstal boys undergoing hard labour and Brighton’s legendary Daddy Long Legs railway
Britain’s only steam monorail and Liverpool’s Overhead Railway – the dockers’ umbrella
The Snowdon Mountain Railway – Britain’s only rack and pinion line
Spurn Head Railway in Yorkshire, where trains were hauled by sails!
The hidden railway that runs through the middle of the fairytale St Michaels Mount in Cornwall and the Haytor Tramway–Dartmoor’s giant ‘Brio’ set that built London bridge
