The Kerry Tramway and Other Timber Light Railways

Photocopy of section on narrow gauge railways in Scotland from The Kerry Tramway and Other Timber Light Railways. Includes information on Dornoch Light Railway. 9 loose sheets. The extract refers to the despatch of the Haig 0-6-Tank Engine to Dornoch Station in November 1917 for use by the Canadian Military Forestry unit to extract timber from the Duke of Sutherland's plantations (e.g. Harriet, Duchess-Countess, Lochs, Dukes Wood and Poles plantations). The forest railway tracks were temporary and were lifted and re-used once the timber had been extracted. (see also 2009_042_01 and 02 - the latter photographs of the Tank Engine)
