The Hay Railway
- The Hay Railway
- by C.R.Clinker
- This volume breaks new ground in being the first history of an early railway to be based largely upon original records. Opened in 1816-18 principally to carry coal and general goods from the canal at Brecon to Talgarth, Hay and Eardisley, the Hay Railway was the twelfth to be incorporated by Act of Parliament.
- Though there is only fragmentary information about some of these pioneer ventures, the more important records of the Hay Railway's first 22 years have not only survived but have been lent to the author. His account brings to life the people who financed and built the line and handled the inexperienced contractors, and it describes in clear detail the construction and practical running of what was in its day an extremely ambitious undertaking.
- A clear and fascinating picture of a most interesting early line, well printed, with a good map and varied illustrations, said the Railway World. For the first time the by-laws and regulations for Government and Good Order of a very early railway are reproduced in full
