NEW Book Available!!!


This new book by Trevor L. Gosling is the first book to be published about the ALR in over 25 years and is the latest addition to the range of merchandise available from The Ashover Light Railway Society.


‘A collection of images leads the viewer through the history of the Ashover Light Railway, from its opening in 1925 to its dismantling and closure just one week short of its 25th anniversary in 1950′

Based on a compilation originally prepared by Ralph Gibbons, a former Trustee of the Society who died in 2014. It relies heavily on photographs from the collection of Robert Gratton, an author of the book ‘The Ashover Light Railway’ published by Wild Swan Publications Ltd and several other sources.

It contains 4 colour images and many black and white photographs portraying all the aspects covered by the 7 1/4 mile railway.

Please visit out ALRS Merchandise page or visit eBay to purchase your copy.
