This reprint of a 1915 catalogue of light railway equipment issued by Robert Hudson Ltd. of Leeds contains a wealth of information for anyone interested in narrow gauge railways - particularly modellers and historians. Robert Hudson, celebrating 50 years in business in 1915, had been transformed from a local engineering shop into an internationally renowned company, and was about to become principle contractor for rolling track and stock for a massive programme of light railway construction for World War One.
This reprint covers every aspect of light railways - Hudson supplied trackwork, steam and internal combustion locomotives, industrial and passenger rolling stock, mining and quarrying equipment, wheels, axles and other wagonn components - even specialist equipment for steelworks and blacksmiths. Profusely illustrated with pictures, drawings and diagrams, it is a fascinating insight into light railways a century ago.
