Welsh Railway Records Volume 1 - Rhymney Railway Drawings
The Rhymney Railway opened in the winter of 1857-58 and this idiosyncratic company was largely reliant upon outside framed saddle tanks during the 19th Century. In the early 20th Century, under the guidance of R- Jenkins and C-T- Hurry Riches, the motive power and rolling stock was transformed, providing the Company with modern stock that survived in some cases to the British Railways era; the last of the powerful Rhymney tank locomotives only finally went to Swindon for cutting up in 1957. This volume, the first in a series of Welsh Railway Records, has at its focal point a series of detailed drawings prepared by the late Mike Morton Lloyd and Trefor Jones of pre-Grouping Welsh rolling stock as it appeared in original condition and after rebuilding by the Great Western Railway. There are thirty-eight drawings for the RR all reproduced here at 7mm scale. These are accompanied by photographs and summary histories.
