Product description

Review

This is a wistful and sepulchral affair yet … The Trains Now Departed is more than just a lamentation for the days of steam and soot., Times Literary Supplement

In elegant prose Michael Williams takes us on nostalgic journeys, reminding us - with smuts and smells - of what we have lost. -- Michael Portillo

Revel in what we've lost and wonder how on earth we ever had it. It's a perfect book for a leisurely, long rail journey. If the scenery leaves you uninspired, then read a chapter, refresh your mind, and gaze once more from your window. -- Philip Haigh, Rail Magazine

A nostalgic thrill for anyone with the least longing for the lost age of steam., Press Association

Williams is to railway writing what his namesake Portillo is to railway television, Rail Magazine
