When the famous Elan Valley reservoirs were built the railway helped to transform this beautiful part of Wales to the sight known and loved by so many holiday-makers and daytrippers today. The story of how the dams were built and why, is beautifully told here. There is a fascinating insight into the men who built the dams and the village that was constructed for the navvy community. For all those interested in this part of Mid-Wales, railways and social history this book makes compelling reading. Back again due to popular demand, and this time with a fullcolour laminated , card cover. 232 pages, A5 format, with 110 photographs plus plans, etc., printed on art paper. A pull-out map of the system is also included.
