Product description

Review

'A railway history that is both salutary and funny.'
-- Guardian

'Engel has clearly done his homework and is often very funny' -- Daily Telegraph

'Engel's elegiac tale with its gentle humour and acute insight rises far above the usual banalities and makes perfect reading on your train journey.' -- Oldie

'Interesting and informative, written with serious intent, but leavened with plenty of humour and offering real insight into our railways.' -- Leicester Mercury

'It is rare to find a book that encapsulates a bit if everything, but this one does.'
-- TSSA Journal

'Sad and funny...Engel's eye and ear for the absurd and improbable make him a marvellous journalist.' -- Literary Review

'[An] entertaining romp through the history of Britain's railways...Engel's take on railway history is surprisingly entertaining' -- Scotsman

'brilliant...The beauty of Eleven Minutes Late is that it combines a sustained and very funny rant about the chaotic state of Britain's privatised rail system with huge affection for the romance of the train. And indeed with the beguiling history of travel.'
-- Independent
