The Lambourn Branch

Regular price £18.00
This is an attractive and comprehensive history of the branch which ran from Newbury to Lambourn, famous for its racing stables. The book includes coverage of the line's early independent days, right through the GWR's upgrading up to the line's amazingly late survival into 1973 as a private line run by the USAF. This was to serve an enormous munitions store which had been connected to the branch by a new 2 mile long railway built in 1952. It is possible that the line would have remained in use for even longer had it not been for BR's perceived over-charging for pilots etc. for the last bit of working into Newbury station - a fascinating story well told.
