In preparation now, the superb new RCL Publications book WDLR Companion by Colonel David W Ronald and Roy C Link. Although titled as a companion (to the WDLR Album published in 2014) it is very much a standalone book. It is the result of original research into new material which for the first time explains how the WDLR came into being, how it was resourced and organised, and how it quickly became forgotten. It also contains a ‘Portfolio’ of 59 scale drawings by noted draughtsman Peter Foley, himself a WD Light Railway specialist, plus extracts from the report itself and much more original material not seen before. We expect this to be even more popular than the original WDLR Album.
Being printed now, the price will be £31.95 - in a uniform format to our earlier book, 196 artpaper pages, over 62 photographs, 56 modeller's scale drawings, 29 drawings, diagrams maps and plans.
Full of fascinating details, including how the WDLR was operated, there are reproductions of the original track and turnout drawings, including a 60cm/SG crossing - plus a deal more.
Once the book is printed and bound, ready for despatch, the pre-pub offer will be withdrawn. All copies ordered will be sent to you direct from the printers.
