Windsor to Slough is a mere 2¾ miles long, but what a history this short line has! After the branch was built it was used regularly by Queen Victoria. When she died her body was taken by train to Windsor for burial, a tradition followed three times up to 1952. Naturally the royal use of the line is comprehensively covered and an appendix lists all royal trains used by the monarch on the line. We are fortunate in that two of Windsor’s station masters left detailed diaries which the author has drawn on to give a unique picture of the line.

A5 format, 288 pages, 98 photographs, 20 maps/plans, etc.
