It is a people's book, but who is credited as the author?

This question has similarity to the quiz question:What was the name of the ship in the book 'Mutiny on the Bounty'.

This one may take a 'little' working out.

Looking at some of the locomotives here, you could be forgiven if you thought this railway was in the USA.
Just head upwards (or down, if you start at the other end). Don't get your feet wet as you pass the drinking water.

What is the name of this railway?

The 'little' narrow gauge Brecon Mountain Railway, that passes a reservoir (drinking water -- eventually). They have some locomotives that were built in the USA.

Over to you Stewart Gethin

Right,

Here is said question... a nice easy one(?)

When it was constructed in 1863 it was the deepest cutting in the world. What is it's name?

Would that be Talerddig cutting on the Newtown and Machynlleth Railway?

OK I'll post a question while we wait.
Back to the Brecon Mountain Railway's locos. The Baldwins were late examples of designs which were seen on narrow gauge lines on the east coast of the USA. The lines collectively had a bipedal nickname. That's what I'm looking for.
