Railway revelations and brilliant new trips
The railways are one of our finest engineering legacies – a web of routes connecting people to each other and to a vast network of world-class attractions. It is also the best route to enjoying the landscape of Great Britain. Within these pages Vicki Pipe and Geoff Marshall from All the Stations (YouTube transport experts and survivors of a crowd-funded trip to visit all the stations in the UK) help you discover the hidden stories that lie behind branch lines, as well as meeting the people who fix the engines and put the trains to bed.
Embark on unknown routes, disembark at unfamiliar stations, explore new places and get to know the communities who keep small stations and remote lines alive.
‘If you want to have a railway adventure (but don’t want to be a trainspotter), this excellent book is the best place to start.’
Ian Marchant, author of Parallel Lines and A Hero for High Times.
