I'm trying to find out as much info as possible about these trains use during the first world war but there is very little about them in books. Do any users know of any books that may help?
Wikipedia's article on the War Department Light Railways and Trench Railways list the following titles among its sources:
Davies, W.J.K. (1967). Light Railways of the First World War. Newton Abbot: David & Charles.
Small, Charles S. (1982). Two-Foot Rails to the Front. Railroad Monographs.
Westwood, John (1980). Railways at War. San Diego, California: Howell-North Books. ISBN 0-8310-7138-9.
DeNevi, Don & Hall, Bob (1992). United States Military Railway Service America's Soldier Railroaders in WWII. Erin, Ontario: Boston Mills Press. ISBN 1-55046-021-8.
I haven't read any of these, but I'd reccommend the first one on the strength of other titles published by David & Charles which I have.
