Synopsis

The industrial and minor railways of the former counties of Cumberland and Westmorland are neglected topics deserving of greater attention. West Cumberland has traditionally been a mining, steel-making and quarrying region, with some areas of rail-served industry surviving today. Standard and narrow gauge railways and their locomotives have supported these industries for over a century, a small number even surviving into the twenty-first century.



Gordon Edgar uses his excellent collection of photographs to explore these fascinating railways and their locomotives.
