Product Description

About the Author

Nigel Welbourn has a lifelong passion for lost railways. He has been writing the popular and critically acclaimed Lost Lines series of railway books for Ian Allan Publishing since 1994. Its 14 volumes provide illustrated histories of over 400 different lost lines in the British Isles, together with numerous closed stations and depots. Nigel has always had a great love of Scotland and has visited and revisited the country's railways over the last 50 years. His travel and research over these years has uncovered a rich railway heritage and an unparalleled diversity of lost lines. As a schoolboy he travelled around Britain by train to record as many railway lines proposed for closure as possible. His enthusiasm remains undiminished and over the last five decades he has visited and revisited his earlier haunts - many of which are now sadly devoid of trains or have disappeared altogether. Nigel has lived in seven English counties and one region of Wales. He is a Chartered Town Planner and Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and was awarded the Robert Davies Roberts Memorial Book Prize by the University of London for his thesis on disused railways.

Format: Paperback
A great follow-on from the previous volume, Nigel Welbourn takes us back North of the border to revisit some of the railway lines long since lost.

The maps are a great help and anyone interested in this type of railway history will find something interesting in this book. It follows that anyone from Scotland, or has experience of the railways past in Scotland, will be served better by this book, but as I mentioned, for those just interested in lost railway lines it is also well worth it.

The pictures are great and provide a real sense of the line at that time and there are also helpful present-day pictures to show you what has become of that particular station or scene.

Its well written and put together and serves as a fantastic reminder piece for Scottish railway lines.

Though slightly disappointing in that some of the illustrations have been seen before, it is still a useful addition to the previous publication by this author. The maps provided are useful, especially to those not familiar with Scotland's geography. Also included are relevant timetables and additional snippets of information which keep the publication apart from many others which tend to be on the dull side.

This book covers a lot of Scotland's lost railway lines with an array of top-class photographs. Recommended to anyone with an interest in bygone Scotland.
