5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia
What a wonderful, but sad book. Sad that the railways are not there any more, but good in that we can still see traces of what used to be, and be able to walk along some of the old trackbeds. Very interesting and informative. I intend to buy more of Paul Atterbury's books in the near future.

I have always appreicated and enjoyed Paul Atterbury's books on British railway history. However, this book is a serious disappointment since it is largely a compendium (text, pictures, topics) of information published in previous volumes. There is little new material for the series reader in this volume. Nowhere in the sales material for this new volume was it mentioned...

2.0 out of 5 stars Already Published In Different Titles, 2 Nov 2011
This review is from: Paul Atterbury's Lost Railway Journeys: Rediscover Britain's Forgotten Railway Routes (Hardcover)
Excellent articles, but it would have been nice to know that this is a compliation from "Branch Line Britain", "Along Country Lines" and "Along Lost Lines" by Paul Atterbury so if you own any of these you already have some or all the content of this book.

Disappointing, but in fairness, I have now found this information is available by browsing the Copyright sample page; which of course we all do before purchasing.....

2.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware, 17 Feb 2012

This review is from: Paul Atterbury's Lost Railway Journeys: Rediscover Britain's Forgotten Railway Routes (Hardcover)
As mentioned by previous buyers ALL the material in this book is present in Paul's other works by the same publisher. It's just a shame this is not made made clear before buying except for a note in tiny writing on the copyright page in the preview! The fact though that even judged as a stand-alone work this volume repeats numerous illustrations within itself! As an example; Pages 76 and 77 have nice large colour views of Adderbury and Ryeford (Not "Ryecroft" as captioned) yet these same views are repeated again on pages 98 and 81) This is not an isolated example as the same goes on throughout the book where pictures are used on section heading pages. I rather like Paul's other books with their eclectic mix of pictures, tickets and posters which have a kind of "scrapbook" feel and am in no way knocking his work but the publisher has done him a huge disservice in the way this one has been thrown together. In short, one for the bargain book shops and leaving me feeling somewhat misled.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent overview of lost railway journeys, 16 July 2013

This review is from: Paul Atterbury's Lost Railway Journeys: Rediscover Britain's Forgotten Railway Routes (Hardcover)
All Paul Atterbury's books are of a consistent high quality. Easy read but full of excellent photos and pictures. You don't need to be a train buff to enjoy them.

Bought as a present for a railway enthusiast who found it wide ranging and well produced. It is an overview but would lead you to look into the lines in more detail.
