Spirit of the Llangollen Railway
Spirit of the Llangollen Railway
  • Description

Running, for approximately 8 miles, from Llangollen to the current western terminus at Carrog, this railway is the only operational standard gauge heritage line in North Wales. For most of its length it follows the course of the River Dee affording excellent views of the wonderful Welsh countryside many of which are not available to travellers on the main A5 road which also follows the route higher up the valley side.

There are many pleasant walks through the splendid scenery starting and terminating at the railway’s stations. Not surprisingly the line is the most popular tourist attraction in the area. In this all new pocket-sized album Mike Heath and his son Karl have selected over 60 colour photographs from their respective portfolios to provide a stunning photographic journey along the length of the line capturing the spirit of the beautiful and dramatic scenery, wonderfully restored country stations and variety of motive power that combine to provide a wonderful day out for both tourists and railway enthusiasts.

For well over 25 years Mike Heath has enjoyed combining his hobbies of photography and visiting preserved railways all over Britain. In that time he has amassed a vast collection of stunning photographs covering all aspects of the railways across all four seasons, day and night.

From a very early age his younger son Karl, now 23, has shared his enthusiasm for both steam and photography and has himself built up an equally impressive portfolio. Having already produced nine titles in the Halsgrove Railway Series including The Llangollen Railway, published in 2005 Mike has joined forces with his son to produce this pocket-format book portraying the only operational heritage railway in North Wales.
