West Country Railway Memories – Rose-tinted reflections of some rural railways past and present



Author : Robert Penrose Prance
ISBN : 9780853617310
Cover : paperback
Price : £15.95

This book is not really so much about the trains themselves, but rather more about the stations, signal boxes, railway staff and places by which , and through which, the lines passed. The lines covered include some Great Western lines in Devon and Cornwall and much of the Southern’s ‘Withered Arm’. The last days of the Bridport branch in Dorset are also included, and there is a quick scamper into Wiltshire for the Salisbury-Exeter line. It is now many years since the Beeching report brought about such changes to Britain’s once vast railway system and Robert Prance captures on paper his memories of those changing years.

A5 format, 224 pages, 144 illustrations.
