Book Recommendation - Narrow Gauge Railways of Cuba
« on: December 29, 2009, 05:12:52 PM »
Hi Guys,

If you're interested in the Cuban narrow gauge lines, this book is a MUST have.

"Narrow Gauge Railways of Cuba - From the 1860s to the Present Day"
by Christopher Walker
200 pages
published by Trackside Publications -
price: 30.95 GBP/sc  36.95 GBP/hc
ISBN: 978-1-900095-38-9/sc, 978-1-900095-39-6/hc

Good write ups on the various lines, photos (quite a few in color), maps, rosters, some specs - more Baldwins, Vulcans, ALCOs, than you ever thought you'd see ...

How about a 27.5" (700mm) gauge Baldwin 4-8-0, 2-8-0s, 2-6-0s, 0-6-4ST, or a 2-4-0 w/ tender.  Not to mention an enormous number of 2'6" and 3' gauge locos as too.

I received a copy of the book for Christmas and its pretty terrific!

Best Regards,
