  • Description
  • Reviews

This book, covering Industrial and Narrow Gauge Railways in Cornwall, and its ‘sister’ volume covering Devon, appear as part of the popular and growing series featuring photographs from the collection of Maurice Dart, Cornwall-based photographer and authority on Westcountry railways.

Here are rare photographs, many of them taken by the author, of these important local lines which served ports, military installations, industrial sites and aspects of tourism in Cornwall. Many of these railways have passed into history, although some survive in part as preserved lines which are also included here. Each photograph is accompanied by the author’s own text, unique reminiscences of this important part of Cornwall’s rail system.

Now in his eighties, from a boy Maurice Dart has travelled throughout much of Southern Britain armed with a camera, taking photographs of all things railway. His collection, now numbering many thousands of images, has been the source of many small publications and has been used in countless magazines and journals. Here for the first time is a comprehensive look at an important part of this unique collection – a book that will become a classic of Westcountry steam.

Maurice Dart lives in St Austell, Cornwall. His enthusiasm for railways has been with him since he first travelled with a camera back in the 1930s. His own photographs, each meticulously recorded with locations and dates, comprise the bulk of a collection to which he as added rare and important photographs from other sources.
