4.0 out of 5 stars Help for the novice snooker player., 26 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A useful and easy to read aid to bad snooker players like me. Couldn't really give it 5 stars till I've beaten Ronnie O'Sullivan but a good buy at a cheap price.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... days in East Anglia come flooding back with this excellent photographic record of the last years of steam, 6 Sep 2014

Train spotting days in East Anglia come flooding back with this excellent photographic record of the last years of steam. Claude's, Sandys, and Brits, summer days at Hunstanton come to life again. Highly recommended particularly for those who can remember 1940/50s East Anglia.

5.0 out of 5 stars and this super book brings back the rural atmosphere of the line ..., 6 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating book full of memories for me as I spent my summers at my uncles bungalow in West Winch, that backed onto the line. He was a driver, based at South Lynn, and this super book brings back the rural atmosphere of the line and the feel of a real country railway. Excellent maps and photos and much information make this a brilliant buy. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a wonderful heritage line it would have been, 6 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Many nostalgic memories of a fabulous line! What a wonderful heritage line it would have been! My uncle was a driver on this route after the closure of the M&GN and my summer holidays were spent in the area with days at Hunstanton and Heacham. The station at Wolferton was amazing. I never travelled the Wells branch unfortunately. This brilliant book brings it all back with much information and a great range of maps and photos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good buy!, 6 Sep 2014
Superb little book particularly if you are familiar with these routes and stations. I used to live in a house that backed onto the Southbury loop and knew all these locations really well. Many nostalgic memories of childhood spotting days and lots of new information of which I was unaware. Really good buy!

Tried a cheaper alternative but did not work as effectively as Karchers own product. Works brilliantly with the Karcher Window Vac.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure nostalgia!, 3 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A trip back to my childhood in NE London and holidays in Kings Lynn where my uncle was a driver on the M&GN. This is an excellent DVD of steam in East Anglia and brings back so many memories of Britannias, Claud Hamiltons, the gloom of Liverpool Street and the N7s on the Jazz. Thoroughly recommended for other old steam buffs like me!

Excellent little guide that contains practically everything for the Pages beginner. Has the usual problem of locating specific problems as you work but all the answers seem to be there with a little searching. Thoroughly recommended.
