Platform Souls

The Trainspotter as 20th-Century Hero

Nicholas Whittaker

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.
