Hardback 320pp Illustrated
9781848319899   Product Code: 19924
Nicholas Whittaker's much-loved classic recollects the long sunny days of his childhood when, notepad in hand, jam sandwiches in duffel bag, he happily spent his time jotting down train numbers during the Indian summer of steam and the heyday of diesel. In this updated edition, Whittaker casts a sceptical eye over recent developments and considers the toll that half a century of ridicule and a couple of decades of privatization have wrought upon his beloved pastime.
