L T C Rolt was one of a small group of amateur railwaymen who made their dream of running their own railway come true. Established by Act of Parliament in 1865 and unaffected by mergers and nationalisation, the Talyllyn Railway has been serving a remote valley in the Merioneth mountains ever since. This book presents this railway adventure.
L.T.C. ROLT was born in Chester in February 1910 and died in 1974. He was an engineer and craftsman whose passion for Britain's industrial heritage led him to become one of the foremost historians of the twentieth century. He jointly founded the Inland Waterways Association and also wrote Narrow Boat, Red for Danger and the famous Landscape Trilogy (The History Press).
