West Lothian (Linlithgowshire), despite being one of Scotland's smaller counties and compact in area, lies on lands that have been occupied from way back into pre-historical times. It also sits astride a field of oil-bearing shale, some 75 square miles in area, which was to effect Scotland's first oil boom, as well as rich measures of quality coal, limestone, fireclay and ironstone, these latter being in ever-increasing demand by the burgeoning iron and steel industry of the late 1800s. Inevitably, these mineral riches required dependable transportation to the users and customers, and railways were to provide the means.

Hard back.
