From sleep deprivation to gung ho drivers, this is no ordinary trainspotter’s diary, but a nostalgic and evocative look back to how things really were in those steam days. A must have read for enthusiasts and locals to the closed railways alike, this is one man’s journey with 130 contemporary images to capture the railway as it was then, fully aware that things were about to change for good (but not necessarily for better).

This is the perfect accompaniment to the ever-growing interest in how the railways used to be. It is a personal and informed account that all people with any interest in the Southern Railway or steam in general will no doubt relate to.
