This could best be described as a general book and not specific to any line or railway company. As it says its a nostalgic look at a byegone age. I enjoyed reading it and had not seen the majority of the pictures before. A lot of the pictures have a lot of detail such that you can pick it up again and again. This will not suit you if you want specific detail but if you want a good railway read I recommend it. I went on to buy along country lines if thats any recommendation.

Another first class book from Paul Atterbury - again full of interesting photos and packed with nostalgia.
Like the rest of his railway nostalgia books, it can be read again and again.

Given that there must be a finite limit to the number of photographs surviving, even in private collections, this is an excellent source of pictorial and other information for model makers. Mr Atterbury knows his subject well and is an excellent communicator; I now have 3 of his books and all are good resources as well as enjoyable reading.

Can't fault this book at all, fantastic photographs of the many branchlines, and very informative. An absolute unique book that anyone remotely interested in Britain's lost railways will find impossible to put down.

Mr Atterbury has produced a fascinating book which is very well written and compiled as one would expect after having witnessed Mr Atterbury's performances on the Antiques Roadshow.

Lovely book, obviously written by an enthusiast on top of his game. Great photos and interesting text make this a highly recommended read about railways in the recent past.

The classic Paul Atterbury layout as seen in nearly all his books: plenty of photographs, posters, tickets, luggage & parcel labels accompanied by informative text is a winner every time for me. Paul's enthusiasm for railways comes over and once you've bought one of his books you'll soon find yourself getting his other titles and before you know where you are he's got a shelf to himself and why not, thoroughly enjoyable books to pick up at any spare moment and unlike some books can be read again and again, you'll always see something in a photograph you didn't see before.
