The Fairbourne Railway – A Centenary of Steam


The Fairbourne Railway – a Centenary of Steam was published to mark the Fairbourne Railway’s 120th anniversary as a tramway, and 100th as a steam-hauled narrow-gauge railway. The line is steeped in history, brought to light here by Graham Billington’s written history and a selection of stunning photographs

fairbourne-railway-a centenary-of-steamA Long History
The Fairbourne has had no fewer than two full changes of gauge in its long history, evolving from a short horse-drawn tramway into a rare 12 1/4″ gauge miniature.

120th Anniversary
The railway has been around since 1895 and celebrated its 120th anniversary and steam centenary in 2016. This book was written by Fairbourne expert Graham Billington to mark the event.
The first edition sold out very quickly, so the railway has commissioned a very limited reprint, and we were lucky enough to obtain a few copies.
A well written story, in a big A4 format with stunning colour photos throughout. Stocks of this reprinted edition are very low.
