By Gareth Simon TOP 100 REVIEWER
This is an excellent and informative survey of the subject, a 2 3/4 mile branch line from the Holyhead to Chester railway at Prestatyn which opened in 1869. It was the route that the first LNWR steam railmotor was used on.

It is recommended for anyone interested in the history of minor British railways. This edition is 80 pages with photographs, maps and illustrations included in the text. It is No. 160 in the Oakwood Press' Locomotion Papers from 1986.
