This much enlarged new edition brings the story up to date. It tells of the various railways which served Poole Harbour. From the coming of the main line to Poole and changes to the main line network through the years, to the story of the many minor railways in the area.

Amongst the lines covered are the Hamworthy branch and the industrial lines of Hamworthy, the Poole Quay Tramway and the numerous industrial and private railways in the area. Included are the Southern Western Pottery Railway which connected Parkstone Station to Salterns Pier, the railways of the Royal Navy Cordite Factory at Holton Heath, and the well-known clay lines to Arne and Goathorn Pier to name a few.

The odd-one-out, as it never had a physical connection with Poole Harbour, is the fascinating Bourne Valley Railway which was situated near Branksome Station.

A5 format, 208 pages, more than 270 illustrations.
