Rails Through the Heart of Wales by G. Essex. To celebrate 150 years of the Heart of Wales line, G. Essex has produced a wonderful book depicting this picturesque rural line which runs for over 120 miles, from Shrewsbury to Swansea.

Also known as the Central Wales line, the railway’s history has gone from transporting coal in the early days and soldiers in WW1 to providing a vital transport link today for local communities and tourists.

This book examines the history of this line, accompanied by photographs and maps.
