A TALE OF MANY RAILWAYS - AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY & HISTORY OF ALAN KEEF LTD.ISBN 9781899889303
by Alan M. Keef
The firm of Alan Keef Ltd, Locomotive Builders & Light Railway Engineers, based at The Lea near Ross-on-Wye in rural Herefordshire, is well known to narrow gauge and industrial railway enthusiasts all over the world but few know much of its origins and history. Now, as the founder of the company prepares to take a back seat in the business and leave the running of it to younger family members, Alan Keef has decided the time is right to fully document the history of his firm and its products. This book details the trials and tribulations of building a world-wide business of some renown from scratch. For the steam enthusiast, there are details of the various locomotives that have been overhauled and rebuilt, in addition to those that have been built new. Over 200 photographs, mostly in colour, document the eighty or so new locomotives built up to the time of publication.
