Product description


An excellent book for the light railway enthuiast -- Railway Modeller

well-written and information-packed booklet -- Steam Railway

From the Publisher

The East Kent Light Railway has a very colourful history, being typical of Colonel Stephens' idyllic rural light railways. The Colonel's economies gave rise to the railway's character, with its wooden buildings, tatty engines and infrequent services, all of which created an ambience unique to the line. The line was often referred to as Stephens' "biggest disappointment". Whether he ever uttered those words is unknown, but there is evidence of some truth in the statement. The modern day East Kent Railway is quite different, but still evokes some of the primitive charm of the light railway atmosphere. This chronicle illustrates the line from its conception, through to its rebirth as a passenger carrying light railway, in combination with the Kent coal field.
