    Paperback
    In this, his second book on Fife's railways, local enthusiast and photographer Michael Mather delves into the past with a selection of photographs mainly from the 1950s and 1960s, but also dating back to the beginning of the twentieth century, along with some from more recent years, covering the main, secondary and branch lines, locomotives, trains and infrastructure of the county's railways, most of which has now disappeared. While steam locomotives predominate, first generation diesels, most of which are now history, are also featured, along with industrial systems and their locomotives, accidents, Scotland's first preserved railway at Lochty and a selection of railwayana.
