Coulthard Teasdale McCrickard and Webster [Publisher: North Eastern Rly. Association] Softback
A very nicely produced record of an interesting collection of long since closed minor railway lines, one of which formed part of the original route of the Stockton and Darlington Railway. Although passengers got a look in, industry and minerals were the main reasons for these lines existence. And all authored by a prog rock band too - how delightful....

Peter Paye [Publisher: Lightmoor] Hardback
An attractively produced and comprehensive record of the three foot gauge line that until the 1920s linked the coastal town of Southwold with the Great Eastern system at Halesworth. A great selection of photographs, scale drawings and plans, and a text written by a reliable railway historian. I guess the line attracted a bit of extra interest as there is a surprising large amount of detailed information in this book. The endpapers are particularly attractive featuring the line on the OS 2 1/2 inch map suitably enlarged.
Michael Welch [Publisher: Capital] Hardback
Michael Welch is a picture editor par excellence and his selection of images coupled with the usual high standards of colour repro work from this publisher has resulted in an outstanding album of colour images of the British Steam Railway in operation. Fifty years after the end of steam it is surprising how new and fresh looking images can still be found fore publication, this book certainly has a few of them!
