Building the Mallaig Railway


ABOVE, one of the superb illustrations (Cooper & Sons railway store, Kinlochailort) from a new photographic record of the building of the iconic Mallaig Railway from Fort William to Mallaig.

A cache of some 240 historic cellulose nitrate negatives came up for auction in Cornwall. Luckily they were bought by an informed expert, Michael Holden, and found their way to the Glenfinnan Station Museum and its curator, Hege Hernaes who took on the job of identifying each shot and putting them all into context in the heroic construction of the railway.

The result is a superb record of this wonderful undertaking. Building the Mallaig Railway, published by Glenfinnan Station Museum. ISBN 9781527 273 412.
