If , as I did , you grew up as a child in the 1950s the words 'British Branchline' cannot fail to evoke the image of a steam train eternally bathed in sunshine in some quiet railway backwater of Devon . Every thing that evokes that timeless memory is in this delightful little book . There are delightful GWR 0-4-2 tank engines hauling autocoachs across Dartmoor , there are matchless Southern Railway Bulleid Light Pacifics heading 3-coach sets to sleepy little seaside resorts . It is all wonderful . Stan Yorke describes every lost railway of Devon and unlocks a treasure trove of memories . This volume may well be the jewel in the crown of the Countryside Books Lost Railways series . Even if you have never had an interest in the railways of Devon I would urge you to buy this book just for its sheer charm .

The book is pretty comprehensive and deals with all the relevant lines and what can be seen of them today. It is a fairly small format book with b/w photos and line maps.

This book shows the carve-up made by people obsessed with saving money by creating more expensive railways. Thank you Stan.
