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

Inhaltlich greift der Autor, der sich schon durch frühere Veröffentlichungen hervorgetan hat (Slow Train, Slow Train Again) eisenbahnrelevante Themen auf. Er tut dies ohne romantisierende Darstellungen eines "Trainspotter" oder "Anorak", sondern mit einem liebevollen Blick für wesentliches Detail und die manchmal bedauerliche Realität, und dies alles in ausgefeilter, gut zu lesender Art und Weise.
Ein schönes Buch!
