Merthyr Tydfil Tramroads And Their Locomotives. Ref: W1785  


Rattenbury, G & Lewis, M J T.
Medium, 88 pages, illustrated with photographs, line drawings, reproductions of contemporary views and maps, soft back. **The Merthyr (or Penydarren) Tramroad was opened in 1802 to convey the products of Merthyr's four large ironworks to the canal at Abercynon. Its place in the history of railways is fundamental: it was the site of the 1804 run of Trevithick's locomotive - the first steam engine to run on rails. Later many more engines were used on the road, most of them highly idiosyncratic designs from the Neath Abbey Irorworks. This book, which marks the bicentenary, combines two works on this system: Gordon Rattenbury's history of the tramroad, not previously published, and Michael Lewis's history of the motive power, an extensively revised and enlarged verion of his 1975 work Steam On The Penydarren.
