50 Years of Railways around Bristol

Paul Stanton    [Publisher: Silver Link]    Hardback

A well informed and very well illustrated account of the recent history of the railway network around Bristol, written by a career railwayman with a positive and lively interest in his subject and industry. Paul's late father John was a railwayman too, and the many of the earlier photographs in the book are his. Whatever you think of the changes that have taken place over this period, railway staff have kept the job running through thick and thin, whilst undergoing significant changes themselves, and the network now carries more passengers than ever before. There are very many positive aspects to all of this and this book celebrates them all through images and an optimistic and joyous text which is a credit to the author and a great advertisement for the railway industry.
