Inhaltsangabe: CELEBRATING FIFE'S RAILWAYS. By the end of the nineteenth century Fife, like most of central Scotland, had a fairly extensive railway network serving the towns and country, moving the people and products of its varied industries and agriculture around. In this comprehensive book, local photographer and railway enthusiast Michael Mather examines the railways of Fife, looking at the network over the period from the end of steam traction to the present day. The Railways of Fife covers the stations and locomotives on the main line through the kingdom from the Forth Bridge to the Tay Bridge, the Dunfermline Branch and the Perth line before looking at freight, closed lines, preservation and steam specials, giving a cross-section of how things have changed on the railways in Fife since the 1960s.
Inhaltsangabe: To many people, the railways of Fife are limited to the East Coast Main Line between the Forth and Tay bridges, and the Fife Circle running through such towns as Thornton, Cowdenbeath and Dunfermline. This book, by photographer and railway enthusiast Michael Mather, covers these lines, but also much more, including disused lines, freight, the last steam services in Fife, industrial steam and the introduction of preserved steam. Covering the 1960s to the present day, this book is a comprehensive guide to the railways of this part of Scotland.
