Forget the Anorak
Forget the Anorak

2.0 out of 5 stars A promise undelivered, 7 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Forget the Anorak (Paperback)
This book promises to recall memories of one's youth as a trainspotter and rail enthusiast. The preview and covers are about the best part of the book since it certainly doesn't live up to the promise in any way. This book is more a boring autobiography of a person whose hobby was railways. If you want to know about Fratton and a local worker read it. If you want to recall memories as a trainspotter look elsewhere. A book recalling those days would be great but this is definitely not it!

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent guide, 17 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a fan and student of the Civil War I first saw this book at The Lincoln Memorial.
I've read and collected multiple books and historical videos on this period of US History and find the book offers the best in depth analysis of the battlefields of the US Civil War and represents a definitive work on the major battles, background and analysis of the main players. It works well.

3.0 out of 5 stars use as an appendix to cj allen's books, 17 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Locomotive Headboards (Paperback)
This book's name is an overstatement of its contents. Compared to CJ Allen's Titled Trains of Great Britain it falls a long way short of its title - The complete story.
As an adjunct to CJ Allen's books it works well. Purely focussing on headboards limits a potentially complex and worthwhile subject. In comparison with CJ Allen omits schedule's, consists, changing haulage and timings.
I enjoyed the limited content but would strongly recommend getting one or all editions of CJ Allen's to properly appreciate the glory of the titled trains.Titled Trains of Great Britain
