Volume 4 - North Wales Narrow Gauge Steam 1959/1960 North Wales Narrow Gauge Steam in 1959/60 - This volume takes Ivo Peters' coverage of Britain's railways into a new realm - the fascinating narrow gauge railways of North Wales.

After a brief visit to BR's last narrow gauge, the Vale of Rheidol Railway at Aberystwyth, we see the early days of preservation of the Talyllyn and Ffestiniog plus a journey up the Snowdon Mountain Railway. The major part of this volume covers the long closed and lost slate quarry railways at Padarn and Penrhyn and Dinorwic Quarry.

Each railway is explored in detail including lineside trips up the lines as well as the slate quarries.
