Voie métrique en Corrèze Le POC

£40.95

Tremendous second book from Stefan Hooß on the metre gauge lines of the Corrèze, this on the largest - the POC.

The POC connected Tulle to Argentat, and to Seilhac, Treignac and Uzerche, used 2-6-0s, rather ungainly looking 0-4+4-0 Mallet tanks, assorted railcar types, plus, latterly, modern diesel locos.

Stefan recounts the history of the system, the locomotives and infrastructure, people, incidents, closure and what may still be seen. Vast numbers of B&W photos, a good number of colour ones, maps, drawings and reproductions of documents. 242 pages. Hardback.
