Brief description: This paper, originally written in 1898 by Leslie S Robertson, a consulting engineer with wide experience in mechanical engineering, describes a variety of narrow gauge railways of two feet and under, including Duffield Bank, Eaton Hall, Festiniog, Lynton and Barnstaple, Woolwich Arsenal and Himalaya.

Recomendation: absolutely, great reading about the usage of different gauges and why a specific gauge were selected. About half is drawings and pictures.
