CELEBRATING FIFE S RAILWAYS. By the end of the nineteenth century Fife, like most of central Scotland, had a fairly extensive railway network serving the towns and country, moving the people and products of its varied industries and agriculture around. In this comprehensive book, local photographer and railway enthusiast Michael Mather examines the railways of Fife, looking at the network over the period from the end of steam traction to the present day. The Railways of Fife covers the stations and locomotives on the main line through the kingdom from the Forth Bridge to the Tay Bridge, the Dunfermline Branch and the Perth line before looking at freight, closed lines, preservation and steam specials, giving a cross-section of how things have changed on the railways in Fife since the 1960s."
