4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting. It's more about golf than trains.... 15 Mar 2012
By JP Czar - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read an awful lot on the topic of golf and golf in Scotland in the last year. In order to write a 'new' history book on the topic of golf in Scotland, writers will attach their writing to a 'vehicle' and use the vehicle to tell the story.

And so it goes with this book. Don't get me wrong, it's an interesting topic. The 1800s golf explosion was assisted by the corresponding explosion in train industry. However, I was hoping for more on the train side of things and a bit less on the history of golf - with a little train info thrown in....

It's a good book and I recommend. But don't expect a lot. This is a short read - less than 200 pages....
