Percy Parsons – 50 Years on The Railway


Out of stock



Percy joined the Somerset & Dorset Railway in 1937 as a junior porter and worked throughout his career in the Somerset area with a gap for World War Two.

This book details his career and experiences on the S&D branch from Evercreech to Burnham and the staff he worked with over the years. There are many of his photographs from the whole period up to his retirement in 1987 at Bridgwater where he was station supervisor.

The book was written by Percy and assisted by Kathleen Cowles.
Sadly Percy died in August 2019 aged 96 but his life lives on in this important account.
