It's pleasing to be able to write that the vast majority of railway books received for review make enjoyable reading, but it's rarer to find one that is, in places, laugh-out-loud funny. Highly recommended Steam Railway

The old letters about smoking carriages, woman only carriages etc are so "un PC" and a reflection on how the world has changed.
As someone who has worked on the railway for 47 years I can related to a lot of the incidents mentioned in the book
Any railway book gets ticked by me!
Reading only a selection will make one realise that the British write and complain about the same things over eighty years.
