The Lost Railways series expands into Wales with this comprehensive account of Gwynedd's railway and tramway networks. It is hard to credit that there was a time when a train passenger could expect to travel from Porthmadog to Llandudno within an hour; today, the journey by road takes more than twice as long. Apart from North Devon, there is possibly nowhere else in Great Britain where you can travel so far without seeing a modern working railway line. They may be gone except, for some preserved lines such as the Welsh Highland Railway, but fortunately much of the county's railways and engines were captured in their prime by many local and enthusiast photographers. Fifty-two of these rare period photographs are collected here with valuable statistics and historical accounts of each line. Locations featured include: the Aberglaslyn Pass, Trawsfynnydd, Beddgelert, Ynys, Menai Bridge, Treborth, Port Dinorwic, Dinas Junction, Groeslon, Penygroes, Pant Glas, Llangybi, Chwilog, Nantlle, Cwm-y-Glo, Llanberis, Bala Junction, Bala, Arenig, Cwm Prysor, Trawsfynnydd Lake, Ffestiniog, Blaenau Ffestiniog, Felin Hen, Bethesda, Garneddwen, Drws-y-Nant, Penmaenpool, Dolgellau, Barmouth, Dinas Mawddwy, Cemaes Road, Waenfawr, Bettws Garmon, Bryngwyn, South Snowdon, Nantmor, Porthmadog, Corris, Machynlleth, Aberllefeni, Pontrhythallt and Pwllheli.
