Pest-Stop Trip-Trap (Single) - Catches Mice Alive
Price: £3.89

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work for us., 20 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It didn't work for us. The plastic drop-down flap was too light I think. In the end our cats caught the mouse they had brought in, in the first place.


Little Dart ~ Trinity Lighthouse/Light House Model ~ TREVOSE HEAD ~ Cornwall ~ England
Little Dart ~ Trinity Lighthouse/Light House Model ~ TREVOSE HEAD ~ Cornwall ~ England
Offered by Stc Stores
Price: £37.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite., 20 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Exquisite resin model with reasonably robust detailing. The model does not include the light keepers' cottages which flank the base of the tower and are in reality integrally linked to the tower itself. Still, it's a lovely model. Rural Retreats organise the letting of the cottages on behalf of Trinity House and one of these models adorned our living room window seat when we stayed there. A must have!


Portsmouth Trolleybuses
Portsmouth Trolleybuses
by David R. H. Bowler
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars The highest quality with lots of maps too!, 17 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A serious and substantial book based on a great deal of research and unusually for a bus/trolleybus book, very well-blessed with excellent time-dated serial maps. The reproduction standards of the pictures, especially the 1930s images is generally very high. Hard to imagine anything else needs to be written about this city's trolleybus history.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay, fittings not brilliant…, 17 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The brackets used require circular rebates to be cut in the wood, a strange extra piece of manufacturing work not needed on the slot-in hinges on the ones I bought 40 years ago. The two pins under the top shelf were bent. Slightly less than overwhelmed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite good, needs more maps, 17 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A general picture-based history of a north Bucks town. The book still sells locally at the full cover price. The book would benefit from having a lot more maps in it, of different periods. It may not be a big place, though recent estates built to the south west and west have increased its overall size considerably, but maps would aid understanding.


New Zealand Railways: Their Life and Times
New Zealand Railways: Their Life and Times
by Robin Bromby
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.67

2.0 out of 5 stars Typos!, 7 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Typos, typnos, typo s. Written by a journalist so surprising to find an annoying number of typos, particularly where they occur in Bold in photo captions. A book full of facts but poorly organised without much of a sense of telling a history story, nor describing contemporary railways very well either. Text seems to dwell on describing early and now closed minor branch lines. Not a comprehensive account it would seem. The author knows this subject one can believe but he does not prioritise the big news and big facts down the years for the non-expert reader. (So who is it for?).
Pictures reproduced in the text are flat and grey and generally of poor quality.
Perfunctory black and white sketch maps at the front of the railways of the two islands reproduced at a scale to be largely useless.
The text about heritage railways seems to run out about 25 years ago?
This is not, in my view as a paying customer, a quality publication. Robert Schwandl's (German publishing house) book about Australian and New Zealand urban railways shows what a quality publication looks, feels and reads like.


British Warships & Auxiliaries 1952
British Warships & Auxiliaries 1952
by Steve Bush
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and unusual approach to describing the post-war Royal Navy., 6 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very high quality publication and an unusual one in that it handles all the 1952 facts in the style of the current/contemporary series about Royal Navy warships from the same publisher. Being a hardback surprised me, I missed that fact in the description.
