Very much a railway buff's book.
Not so; it certainly introduces aspects of the railways at that time but the stories are all so artificial.
I stopped reading when only half-way through.
Following the lives of his central characters, the stand-alone chapters link together to provide an evolving saga of working class life as the war years dragged on. Much more than a nostalgic journey into railway history, the chapters also form a series of essays, each providing insight - often subtle - into the realities of wartime life; food for serious reflection.
Altogether an enjoyable, engaging read and a valuable insight into W W II social history.
