A Privileged Journey, from Enthusiast to Professional Railwayman

B2298

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The author has re-embarked on his privileged journey as a youthful enthusiast into a career in the railways. There is a second volume promised to take the story on from the 1960s to today. Together, the two volumes will make a unique account of railway life and technology. This first volume is a fascinating insight into what is now something of a lost world, but still a world of dreams and love of steam. Strongly recommended.

This lavishly illustrated book naturally carries a higher cover price because of the cost of illustration and production, but it is well worth it. There is appropriate text in the form of introductions and extended captions. Very highly recommended.
