|WDLR Companion by Colonel David W Ronald and Roy C Link.
Although titled as a companion (to the WDLR Album published in 2014) it is very much a standalone book.
It is the result of original research into new material which for the first time explains how the WDLR came into being,
how it was resourced and organised, and how it quickly became forgotten.
It also contains a ‘Portfolio’ of scale drawings by noted draughtsman Peter Foley, himself a WD Light Railway specialist,
196 artpaper pages, over 62 photographs, 56 modeller's scale drawings, 29 drawings, diagrams maps and plans.
Full of fascinating details, including how the WDLR was operated.
There are reproductions of the original track and turnout drawings, including a 60cm/SG crossing - plus a lot more.
