This lovely book celebrates the heritage of Branchline Britain. It explores surviving lines, and lines no longer in use, visits preserved lines and travels on those lines long forgotten. It is both a practical guide and a look back at the lost golden age of steam. Branchline Britain takes you on a bygone journey from the South West up to the North of the British Isles. Special features along the way focus on unique parts of our railway hertiage including railway vehicles, transporting livestock, branchline staff and stations and trainspotters. The book contains an impressive array of nostalgic photographs, ephemera and memorabilia, many from the author's own, previously unpublished, collection.
