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.
