New Books On Sir Arthur Heywood's Railways

Post by Erskine Tramway » Mon Nov 04, 2019 11:10 am

Hi Folks...

It's been my pleasure to make the drawings for this new pair of books. The first volume, on the Duffield Bank and Dove Leys Railways, will be out later this month, here is a picture of the cover.
AH Vol 1 wrapper 01.pdf
(316.7 KiB) Downloaded 68 times
The second volume, on the Eaton Railway, will be out about this time next year.

I'm told that the price will be £47.50, and will be available from the Publisher, RCL Publications, and Camden Miniature Steam Services https://www.camdenmin.co.uk/

I hope you will enjoy them.

Mike, looks very interesting! can you say how many of the drawings relate to 4 wheel boogies, rather than the two wheel carts? I’ve been searching for drawings of early style 4 wheeled passenger cars in 15” gauge.

Thanks,
Glenn

Hi Glenn...

There is a whole page of details of the several styles of bogie Sir Arthur used over the years. There are 9 different bogie cars; the Workman's Coach, the Closed Saloon, the Parcels Van, the Open Coaches, The Diner, the Sleeper, a 'drop side' Gondola, a low side Gondola, and the Saloon that was completed at Ravenglass after Sir Arthur's death. Cars that require more details have two, or more, pages. Most of them will be printed at 1:32 scale, with some detail drawings at 1:24 scale. The outline drawing of the Saloon is at the end of the train in the cover artwork in the .pdf above. The book will be in Landscape format, about 11-1/8' by 8-5/8".

Mike

PS...All of the Early Bassett-Lowke 15" gauge cars were four-wheeled. There is a drawing of one of them in Milner's book "Rails Through the Sand", about the Fairbourne Railway.

Very interesting. I have a growing collection of books about UK minimum gauge railways and may have to add this set to it.
