5.0 out of 5 stars great little book
I really enjoyed this book (and great value at Amazon compared with buying through the Newpaper).

The old letters about smoking carriages, woman only carriages etc are so "un PC" and a reflection on how the world has changed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Was Expecting Better
I love the 4 volumes of Unpublished Letters to the Daily Telegraph & was expecting to be as amused by this book. I was bored!

A very humorous little book going back quite a long time in the last century. A good read on the journey to London on the train!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read, 25 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some serious and very funny reading in this book, just wait until you read about the one someone sent in about 100 years in the future and stepping back in time to relive an over crowded train journey. Also a funny one about Ginger Cake in a buffet car. All will be revealed.

This review is from: Leaves on the Line: Letters on Trains to the Daily Telegraph (Telegraph Books) (Hardcover)
Very interesting history of public attitudes (at least, Daily Telegraph readers!) to British Rail before, during and since nationalisation. Especially amusing in more recent times.

5.0 out of 5 stars A funny read, 5 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Leaves on the Line: Letters on Trains to the Daily Telegraph (Telegraph Books) (Hardcover)
An excellent read for both railway fans or even those forced to travel by train. I actually laughed out loud at times.
As someone who has worked on the railway for 47 years I can related to a lot of the incidents mentioned in the book
