A nostalgic look back at the top spots for trainspotters in the 1950s and 60s. A wealth of memories for those once and always train enthusiasts who can remember the excitement of close encounters with steam and speed, tracks and trains, engines and engineers. Divided into the six British railway regions, each chapter documents the favourite stations and engine sheds that were a magnet to the spotter. An evocative look at the golden age of British railways in the post-war years, this book revisits the bestselling The Lost Joy of Railways with the addition of new photographs, personal note book pages, and other ephemera. A perfect gift for train spotters, old and young.

“Cynical Publishing at its worst”

This is basically a previously published book - "The Lost Joy of Railways" - retitled and republihsed. The images in the book are almost identical and the text suprisingly similar. Don't buy and support... More
