Book Description

31 Mar 2009
The most intriguing and least known of Britain's railways are the minor lines: rural routes and branch lines - some still active if little-used, others long since lost, industrial and docks lines, narrow gauge and miniature lines. These can be found in all corners of the country and represent, both historically and in modern terms, a delightful miscellany of the unusual and the quirky. With lively, informative accompanying text by Paul Atterbury, best-selling author of railway books and Antiques Roadshow expert, "All Change!" focuses on these minor railways, once vital to the commercial and social life of Britain but now largely forgotten, abandoned by the changes in modern-day travel and transport habits.

By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Paul Atterbury has written plenty of books about railway nostalgia, but he came to my attention with the first of what turned into a series of four books published by David and Charles. Each of those books had the same basic style but covered a different aspect of railway nostalgia. This book follows the same basic formula except that it covers all the aspects previously featured, but using different material. For example, we get features on branch lines to Gunnislake, Marlow and many other places, which might have been included in Branch Line Britain: A Nostalgic Journey Celebrating a Golden Age but weren't. The feature on the line from Inverness to Wick could have been included in Along Country Lines: Exploring the Rural Railways of Yesterday but wasn't, while the Lybsster and Coniston branches weren`t included in Along Lost Lines or Branch line Britain, but could have featured in either. The picture of the ruins of the original Gosport station could have been used in Tickets Please!: A Nostalgic Journey Through Railway Station Life. This variation on a successful formula may put some people off, but not me.

The Gunnislake branch also featured in Memories of Steam. Tom Quinn, but neither book offers any explanation for the line's survival in its present form.

If you've enjoyed any of Paul's other books you will enjoy this - and then go back for more. If you're new to them - a great read and good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and also informative 11 Jun 2010
If you're interested in the history and geography of railways, presented in a colourful yet informative manner, then you can't go wrong with this book. Even if none of the featured lines are near you, the book is a good read. I especially like the fact that the book is not just pictures of steam locomotives but also includes both then and now pictures of the whole rail infrastructure. The choices are also varied in terms of type and location.

Basically, buying this book has convinced me to gradually buy all his other books!

5.0 out of 5 stars Railways again 20 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoy books written by Paul Atterbury and I must admit that this one is the best I have read. Yes it is a picture book but the captions by Paul are so full of information that it is just like reading a text book about the railways from the late 19th Century to date. Very enjoyable and informative.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A varied collection of past and present photographs of everyday railway activity and activities long gone, such as the sections on miniature and hobby trains. I wouldn't say it was aimed at the true enthusiast, but still an easy read for anyone with an interest in things railway. It doesn't have to be read from cover to cover.
