Book Description

14 Jan 2013 Impermanent Ways
Jeff Grayer's previous books in the Impermanent Ways series have been widely welcomed and enjoyed by enthusiasts and the public alike. The latest volume in the series covers Somerset. The author has deliberately excluded the Somerset and Dorset line, which is covered in detail elsewhere. Instead, he has concentrated on the many closed lines from north of Yeovil across to Chard, Langport, Witham, Cranmore, Mells, Shepton Mallett and, of course, the now preserved West Somerset route. Detailed historical notes relating to all the closed lines are provided in the informative captions which accompany the wealth of photographs, all of which are in colour. Lots of other railway emphemera is also featured, including extracts from old timetables, notices and tickets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impermanent Ways. 12 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This superb series of books shows stations, goods yards, junctions etc just after closure or rationalization in the 60's and 70's. The focus is on locations rather than engines. The front cover pictures you see on Amazon are what the entirety of the books are about, and most of the photos in all the books are in colour. I did read one review which criticized the quality of some of the photos in some of the books, but I found the content all very good; remember it was a different age then with film not digital cameras! The books are all printed on glossy paper and the production quality is very good. They are basically picture albums with a caption for each picture. Sometimes there could be a little more information and consistency in the captions eg some tell us the fate of the location and some don't. This volume on Somerset does not include the S&D as this has already been covered in the three 'Sabotaged and Defeated' books. Likewise not all the LSWR locations are featured in the Devon volume, and presumably this will be the case in the Cornwall one as well when it comes out, as they have been covered in the 'Tracks of the ACE' volume, which is produced in the same format and is similarly very interesting. Apart from the captions I only have one criticism in that the maps inside the covers are of varying usefulness; some are quite good but others are rather incomplete in that they sometimes do not cover enough area around the region being considered, or do not have all the stations marked on. For some volumes it's better to have a separate atlas to hand. Overall these are excellent books. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Closed Lines of Britain 25 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent coverage of long lost rail lines in UK. Have collected all books in series so far and have the 6th on pre-order. Would recommend to all those whose interest is in closed lines which at one time covered almost all of the British Isles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read and reference. 9 July 2014
A lot of nostalgia, great pictures and text, if you love Britain's lost railways and know the area, go buy.
