Post 1939 Welsh Military Railways


Wales was home to some of the largest War Department railway systems and Royal Ordnance factories in the UK (Shropshire & Montgomeryshire Railway, ROF Bridgend, Wrexham.

My research is on going, but I have been fortunate in recent years to have visited the Royal Ordnance Factory in Glascoed, Royal Armament Depot in Trecwn and the former Royal Navel Propellant Factory in Caerwent.

Reference information on locos can be found in the The Industrial Railway Society,s publications. Some railway layouts can be found in Tony Cooke's Track Layout Diagrams of the GWR and BR (WR) (currently being reprinted).
