4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful introduction, 11 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Early Railways (Shire Library) (Paperback)
Like all Shire books this is a fine introduction to a neglected subject, since railways and their predecessors have a long and important part in Britain's industrial history. It's also one which is hardly covered by the enthusiasts. As usual it's great value, but let down by the lack of a list for further reading.

I would admit that most stuff written on the subject will be in specialist journals: perhaps the authors might consider a larger but still "popular" work on the subject. i'm not aware of anything other than "Early Wooden Railways" of c.1970

Glad you found it useful. Shire did request a further-reading list. However, this may be the only book on the subject which is in print, and we did not want to frustrate readers by suggesting books which would be difficult or expensive to access. Andy Guy (joint author)
