Product description


Colin G. Maggs features the vivid reminiscences of two railwaymen in this fascinating record of working life on the British rail network during the steam age. Their recollections give us a keen insight into what it was like to run a railway between the 1920s and the 1950s, and their stories are illustrated by revealing and rare photographs which show the lines, stations and landscapes in which they worked. The excitement of the job is recalled, but so are the discomfort and occasional danger of the conditions and the frustrations of the system. The experience of these ordinary railwaymen is representative of the careers of a host of others. These men were the mainstay of the industry for over a century. Colin Maggs's book is informative and entertaining reading for anyone who is intrigued by the operation of the railway a generation ago.
