Following the runaway successes of Alan Hammond s first six books on the Somerset & Dorset Railway, this volume follows the same winning formula, with the emphasis placed on the people who worked on the railway as much as on the locomotives and buildings themselves. With a foreword by well-known television personality Jools Holland, and a lively text packed with anecdotes of railway pranks and fun, accidents and strange happenings, this book is a must have for all S&D enthusiasts! There are accounts of working on the line, of train crews struggling to cross the Mendips, and most importantly, of people going about their daily lives. These stories are accompanied by some of the most fascinating photographs yet assembled, most never seen before, and many which capture intimate scenes of the everyday life of the railway staff. Essential reading for all those keen to learn more about this famous line, and ideal for the many who wish to add this volume to their collection.
