The inaugural SLS Literary Award was presented to Colin Mountford on 10th April. (Section added 11 Apr)
The award winning title = Rope and Chain Haulage – The forgotten element of railway history.
Colin is from the North East and has had several other books published. As the title of the book suggests rope haulage has previously been a neglected area of railway study and the book is a significant milestone in advancing knowledge of this neglected aspect of railway heritage. The award was presented at a regular Society meeting in Newcastle. Link to the full version Press Release (Word docx). and press quality version of the photograph.
