by Dirk Eveleens Maarse

Published by the LRTA 2012
This long-awaited new book complements the late Keith Davies’s “The Vicinal Story: Light Railways in Belgium 1885-1991” and covers in great detail all the steam, diesel and electric vehicles operated by this iconic system from its inception through to the split into the Flemish and Wallonian regional transport companies twenty-one years ago.

Dirk Maarse has created a masterful compendium of the amazing variety of Vicinal rolling stock, operated on three different track gauges, with illustrations in both black & white and colour of most types. Numerous tables set out the details of numbering schemes, construction and withdrawal dates, manufacturers and a host of other information for the passenger and goods fleets. A “must have” book for fans of Belgium’s vast secondary tramway network

With attractive hard gloss cover, this A4-size work comprises 246 pages, fully-illustrated in colour and black & white, 56 tables

Note: The previous book 'The Vicinal Story' is out of print - please let us know if you would be interested in that book so we can judge whether to do a reprint.
