A very disappointing book from Ian Allan.
To be fair, there are some good photographs ( the front cover is one ), but there are too many sub standard one's included.However, if you accept this, there is much period interest to enjoy in the content.
The author repeats time and time again, that locomotives are carrying the wrong headcode; those of us old enough to remember this period are well aware of that fact. A mention in the introduction narrative would have sufficed.
Also, some of the recorded dates in captions are inaccurate by years ! Some basic research would have avoided these errors. There are other very basic errors too " A D6300 is very rare on the Looe Branch "... actually the photograph in question is at Coombe Junction, the train is ex Moorswater and the motive power staple at the time ! There are others I could mention too.
Any fans of the NB D6300's should buy this book, because no previous publication can ever have included so many photographs of this short lived class!!
To be fair to the author, he has gone to a great deal of trouble to include photographs recalling long since closed branch lines in Devon & Cornwall.
Great detail in some; just right for anyone modelling early diesel days in the west country.
A most enjoyable tour around Devon & Cornwall.
