About the Author

Paul Atterbury is the author of numerous books on railway topics including Branch Line Britain and Along Lost Lines and has appeared regularly as an expert on the BBC's 'Antiques Roadshow'.


An intriguing and nostalgic read both for those interested in the history of railways in Britain, and for those who simply enjoy a trip down memory lane to the magical Age of Steam locomotives. -- Karen Clare * Family Tree Magazine *
By choice it took me a long time to work my way through this superb book, engrossed as I was in the real-world stories that sprang to life from each wonderful page, via the excellent contemporary photographs and the well-written text. I recommend this is as a 'must-read' for any enthusiast of classic transport (and indeed anyone interested in the social history of Britain). -- Kim Henson * Wheels Alive *
