Along Lost Lines by Paul Atterbury

Ive recently started reading This  Nostalgic and fascinating book again, which  looks at the heritage of lost railway lines in Britain and features some wonderful archive photography to illustrate the way things used to be aswell as using accounts from those who worked on the railways at the time and photos of how the area looks now.

The book is divided into these chapters Southern England, Wales, Central England, East Anglia, Northern England & Scotland. Each chapter looks at subjects such as Lost Routes, Lost Stations, Railway Works, Tunnels Bridges & Viaducts, Signalling, Lost liveries, Excursions, Engine Sheds, Repairs, lost Narrow Gauge Railways, Nameplates & Goods, on each of the railways. The books also looks at the reasons why the closures were made and what became of the various structures afterwards
