An Illustrated History of Plymouth's Railways
The history of Plymouth's Railways, especially the corporate fisticuffs between the broad gauge companies and the LWSR camp, is a complex one and it would be a trifle over ambitious to attempt a thorough going account of the subject in a modest little book such as this. Instead, the text is, to a great extent, an unpretentious collection of material from various primary sources - in an attempt to come up with something a little different, long hours have been spent delving through assorted official documents, railway company committee minutes, Board of Trade reports, accident investigations and the rest. For the purposes of this book, the geographical boundaries are Laira and Plymstock (in the east) and St. Budeax in the west but including the Royal Albert Bridge.
Softcover 94 pages, profusely illustrated with black & white photos.
