Hi Larry

I also have the two Roy Link books (WDLR Handbook and Album).
They are very good and give me a real insight into the operations and equipment used in the Great War.

Two other fairly recent books I have found interesting are part of a series “Allied Railways of the Western Front“,
by Martin and Joan Farebrother, and published by Pen and Sword Transport.

The first two are the Narrow Gauge in The Arras and the Somme sectors.
For me they are interesting as they cover the use of 60cm equipment after the war,
especially in the sugar beet industry and what is in existence today.

Not sure if they are in print, but the Plateway Press “Narrow Gauge at War“ and “Light Track from Arras” are also very good.
I suspect between these and maybe a few others, they cover most of the known photos of these operations.
Although there seem to be some surfacing from the collections of the APPEVA at Cappy-Froissy in Somme France.

There is quite a lot of preserved rolling stock around and I could get some photos if you wanted.

Best regards
