Impermanent Ways Vol 6.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Impermanent Ways/Closed Lines of Brit 6 Cornwall & W Devon (Paperback)
This book, published in may 2013, is the latest in a series of picture albums showing railway locations closed in the 1960s using photographs taken mostly soon after closure. The books provide an interesting pictorial history as most locations are seen in some state of dereliction, but before any significant development of the sites eg demolition, refurbishment. Occasionally there are one or two then and now comparisons. Most of the photos are colour, and each is captioned. There is a map provided inside the front cover, although I have found it useful to have a fuller railway map to hand while studying this book. This is the case too for the other books in the series. All of them are very good and ideal for anyone wishing to find out more about railway history or to supplement other pictures of locations they may have. Inside the back cover is a list of the other books in the series including the two next projected volumes, to cover Dorset and Gloucestershire, in preparation for publication in 2014. Overall, an excellent series of books. Recommended.
