New Book - First World War Transportation

Recommended Posts

defiant1uk

The Moseley Railway Trust (MRT) (http://www.mrt.org.uk) has recently teamed up with Railway Gazette International who publish a very grown-up magazine about proper trains and the rail industry, to reprint their 1920 special edition on War Transport. In 1920, this first-hand account would have been the first time that most readers would have become aware of the machines and techniques used to achieve the recent victory – much of it had been secret until then.

Key topics covered are the vast military standard gauge (also known as Broad Gauge to the railway crews) and narrow gauge railway operations – as well as the work of the lesser known Directorate of Inland Waterways and Dock operations (covering canals, harbours and train ferries). Since 1920, copies of this special edition have been highly prized collectors’ items.

We have had the original professionally scanned and enhanced, to maximise the reproduction of the many pictures. New colour covers and a foreword have been added. The book is “A4” size, and contains 160 pages. We currently expect the book to be published in mid-September 2013.

This, therefore, is your Big Chance to get this book at a worthwhile discount in advance (MRT members will receive a separate offer with their next magazine). Call in at the Apedale shop if you’re in the area for the pre-publication offer, or visit our "Tracks to the Trenches - 2014" event website (http://www.ww1-event.org) for more information
