Railway Anthology is a collection of mainly previously unpublished articles and short stories, covering a lifelong interest in railways. It spans a wide spectrum over the years, from the early days in Kent in 1960, through the many hours on the lineside on the Surrey Hills line and the South Western main line, to the last frantic years of steam on the Southern, and the current steam scene, as well as the privileged and exciting times spent riding on the footplate of steam locomotives. It majors on the authors main railway passions of steam locomotives, train running performance, including modern motive power and all matters Southern. Locomotive performance in Europe and a tramway are also included, as is a fascinating minor- and little-visited narrow gauge railway in Southern England, plus heritage traction on the London Underground.The book comprises approximately 350 illustrations, many in colour, as well as contemporary timetable extracts and copies of notebook pages, which cover shed visits in Scotland. Fifty train running logs are included, together with some detailed records of days spent by the linesides of railways when steam was still the predominant motive power in parts of the south.

"This biography of Horace Porter emphasizes only the span of his adult career -- a little more than six decades. But what a formative time it was! From West Point through the Civil War through the Spanish-American War through World War I. Porter was an able and devoted aid to Ulysses S. Grant during Union military triumphs, during Grant's postwar presidency, through Grant's failing health and death, to the financing and dedication of Grant's tomb in New York. From Continentalism to Imperialism to world power. From bucolic agriculture and westward movement through the great era of railroad construction to world leadership in industry and finance. All that in six decades"--Preface.
