Narrow Gauge in the Arras Sector
The Arras sector of the Western Front in the First World War (WWI) was held partly by the British and Dominions 1st Army from September 1915, and almost wholly by the 1st and 3rd Armies from March 1916. No less than in the Ypres sector to the north and the Somme sector to the south, the struggles of the French and then British troops in this sector were pivotal to the outcome of the War. The sector included countryside in the south, but in the north a major part of the industrial and coal-mining area of northern France, around Lens and Béthune.
In this book the contribution of meter and 60 cm gauge railways to the Allied war effort in this sector is examined in the context of the history of the meter gauge lines already established. The build up of light (60 cm gauge) lines from 1916 is examined in detail area by area, and the contribution of the related meter gauge lines is reassessed, from British and French sources. After the war the role of these railways in the reconstruction and recovery of this devastated region of France is described. Later the surviving part of the 60 cm gauge network served the sugar beet industry east of Arras. The history is followed through another world war to the closure of the last of these railways in 1957.
The book refers to previous works on British War Department light railways in WWI, but contains sufficient general information for readers new to the subject. It also describes how to find key locations now, and how and where rolling stock can be seen. Six walks and an urban tour are included for those who wish to explore the territory in greater depth.
30x22 cm size, 304 pages, more than 200 pictures, 66 diagrams maps and plans.
47 Euros to France. Please contact us to know P&P cost depending of your country.
WDLR Companion
Although titled as a companion (to the WDLR Album published in 2014) it is very much a standalone book. It is the result of original research into new material which for the first time explains how the WDLR came into being, how it was resourced and organised, and how it quickly became forgotten. It also contains a ‘Portfolio’ of 59 scale drawings by noted draughtsman Peter Foley, himself a WD Light Railway specialist, plus extracts from the report itself and much more original material not seen before. A good value book !
21,5x28 cm size, 184 pages, lots of pictures, 56 modeller's scale drawings, 29 drawings, diagrams maps and plans.
48 Euros to France. Please contact us to know P&P cost depending of your country.
