Memories of West Country Railway Journeys 1960-1962
Following on from his successful book "Memories of the Withered Arm", Peter Barnfield continues his recollections of travels in the West Country in the final years of steam.
Railway journeys on ex Great Western lines in the West Country, recalled from notes made at the time and profusely illustrated with the author's own photographs, taken on the journeys described but also on other dates too. Having said this is all ex Great Western, the book includes a particularly delightful journey from Evercreech to Burnham on Sea which takes us all the way from page 48 to page 73. Unlike Peter's earlier "Withered Arm" book, with which this volume is physically uniform, this book includes a number of views of diesels and multiple units, which had started to operate over Western lines by the time of these journeys.
Softback, 108 pages, well illustrated with black & white photographs.
