I agree that Charles Small's Two Foot Rails to the Front is a very good read, and has a good selection of photos. Richard Dunn's book on Narrow Gauge to No Mans Land is also very good. Both books are worth purchasing for your library.
Plateway Press also published 3 soft cover books on WWI trench railways. The first book covered the Western front, and the second book covered mostly everywhere else. The third book  is called the Light Track to Arras, and has great personal recollections of British Army crewmen's experience running light railways. These books are all worth picking up.
I also picked up a book earlier this year on Arras Sector light railways. This thick volume was very interesting, although it may not be for general interest. They covered every line, in this huge military district with many, many branches. This covered the pre-war meter gauge lines, and the 60cm lines built afterward.  I am not at home right now, so I don't have the author and title, but can post that later if anyone is interested.
