5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem of a book! 27 May 2013
This book was worth every penny of it's cost. It is an absolute gem of a book which covers the origins and workings of the Longmoor Military railway from it's inception up until the outbreak of WW2. The aerial photographs showing the development of the railway and all the additional sidings and buildings are crystal clear and give a fascinating birds eye view of the railway.

Longmoor is now a military training area and one that I have used many times. Many of the original buildings are still in place albeit put to another use. It is still possible to see the remains of the sidings and many of the hardened roads around the training area are, in fact, the original track beds. I wish I had had this book some years ago as it would have been an invaluable guide. I can't wait until volume 2 is printed.

This is a highly recommended book which gives the reader a thorough understanding of the Longmoor Military railway. It is set to become the definitive work on the subject, so grab a copy while you can!

5.0 out of 5 stars Longmoor Military Railway 8 July 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have recently purchased the above book and having read the original book by the same author The History of the Longmoor Military Railway published in 1974, also having served as a Blockman ( signal box operative) on the Longmoor Military Railway while doing my National service in the Royal Engineers. I am finding the book ( which will have volume 2 on sale shortly) very interesting. For any one interested in this subject there can be no better publication available.
The author has gone to extraordinary lengths in obtaining information, diagrams and photographs which pack this book and I personally know, also volume 2
So for those interested a excellent read and value for money.
Ex Longmoor Sapper.
