This is a greatly expanded new edition of a book, first published by The Oakwood Press more than 30 years ago. This metre gauge line climbed all the way from Valletta to Museum (Mtarfa/Mdina) via Notabile (Rabat) rising in rather more than seven miles from about 100 ft above sea level at Valletta to nearly 600 ft. The sand-box was much used; on some occasions there could be considerable slipping in either direction. The 10 locomotives were of classic British design being supplied by Manning, Wardle; Black, Hawthorn; and Beyer, Peacock. The railway served the island for almost 50 years before succumbing to road competition. The author's affection for his subject shines through in this account of this fascinating railway. A new section, by Roger Cleaver, 'Exploring the Remains of the Malta Railway', has been added. This book is presented in an A5 page format, 120 pages, with 95 photographs, maps, plans and illustrations. It is perfect bound with a square-backed spine and a laminated cover.
