During the late 1950s and 1960s, vast numbers of British enthusiasts were making the crossing to visit the Reseau Breton, the remaining metre gauge railway in Brittany. It was the most successful, and long-lived, of a number of metre gauge railways in this area of France, eventually finishing in 1967. Despite being narrow gauge, this was sleepy backwater of a railway - the network consisted of five routes radiating from Carhaix which also boasted an extremely active locomotive and carriage workshops. In post-war days, diesel railcars had been employed on all the scheduled passenger services, but steam was very active on the goods services and mixed trains. One of the five lines was converted to standard gauge and continues to provide a service, and the book brings the story up-to-date with a look at some of the modern traction that w operates the line, along with details of earlier standard gauge equipment. The majority of the network was closed over 30 years ago, but there is still much to see and explore.This book is presented in an A5 format, 176 pages, with a glossy laminated full-colour cover with a square-backed spine, and also includes 100 photos, plans, maps and drawings of locomotives, rolling stock and lineside structures.
