From the dust jacket: "Although less well-known than many other narrow gauge steam operated railways in Great Britain, the 18 inch gauge systems constructed from teh early 1860's onwards, played an important part in teh development of narrow gauge railways generally. These railways served main line railway workshops, such as at Crewe, military and service installations and civilian industrial userse alike. This Book is a technical and historical outline of a significant but often neglected area of Britain's railway history."
