Format: Hardcover
I bought this book as a stocking filler for my husband and it's just what I was looking for. A neat compact size to wrap, and full of anecdotes that will keep him amused over Christmas.

Format: Kindle Edition
This book is an excellent example of its type: a collection of anecdotes and ephemera designed to divert and amuse. It succeeds admirably and not just for railway enthusiasts.

How many of the events are apocryphal I cannot tell but no doubt all, or almost all, are at least based on a kernel of truth even if distortions and elaborations have been appended over the years. Nevertheless, there is something here for everyone and it is perfect for dipping into when time is short.

I have the Kindle version and there is one problem with it. Some of the pieces are presumably printed in something other than black ink in the paper version and this causes occasional difficulties on the screen as the contrast is less than perfect. I found that increasing the text size made reading these parts easier but it is still a defect. However, the sections are very short (mostly one or two paragraphs) and not common. I have downgraded the rating to four stars largely because of the annoyance.

A very easy to read series of anecdotes, many amusing, about railways in various parts of the world. Always entertaining and fascinating. The book also gives assorted facts about railways that are new to me. Highly recommended and extremely good value for money.

Brought this for Christmas for my husband so no idea at the time if any good.

He absolutely loves it, has great snippets (apparently!) that he didn't know and he has lots of Railway books.

Good present idea ladies
