  • Description or summary of the book: The GWR's North Wales tentacles extended from Wrexham to Bala Junction, and thence to Blaenau Ffestiniog and, via the Cambrian, to Barmouth. All these lines are explored here, including the sections that today are preserved by no fewer than three very different tourist railways. This brand new Past and Present Companion explores the Great Western Railways historic importance in the north of Wales; both standard gauge and narrow gauge feature within these pages. The past and present comparative treatment is a proven formula for success - the fact that over 50 titles have been published in the main series speaks volumes, literally! In this volume, pictures from the 'real age of steam'- steam in years before 1968 and the early diesel years' are contrasted with the same locations in recent years.Many lines have long since closed evoking many memories for those 'young' enough to remember, while the major preserved railways, The Llangollen Railway, The Bala Lake Railway and the Fairbourne Railway, provide fascinating comparisons with their heritage past - and of course provide young and old alike with the chance to relive the steam age.Locations covered include Wrexham, Blaenau Ffestiniog, Barmouth, Dolgellau, Bala and stations, halts, junctions and lineside views from across the area.
