This book tells how men like Charles Forman, John Aird and 'Concrete Bob' McAlpine solved the many problems involved in taking the lines through the high mountain passes, across the ravines and over the 400 square mile quagmire of the Moor of Ranooch. A vivid picture is given of the thrills and anxieties of everyday working on the West Highland bogie to the coming of the ubiquitous diesel. Solid history of rich anecdote combine to make this an enthralling account of the 165 miles of line that comprised the original West Highland Railway and Mallaig Extension and the Invergarry & Fort Augustus Railway.Very good condition and  good jacket apart from faded spine. 172 pages
