1 The Chiltern Railways Story [Signed Copy]
Jones, Hugh The History Press 2010 0752454544 / 9780752454542 Soft cover New Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall Signed by Author(s)
NEW book. SIGNED by the author (without inscription) on the title page. 'The story of the most successful of Britain's new private railway companies is one of triumphant business despite the odds. Formed in 1996 after the privatisation of British Rail, this is a modern railway history, and one which reveals the secrets behind running a good public transport service. Combining the company history, a tale of ups and downs and battles to fund expansion, with the railway fleet itself and the personal recollections of many of Chiltern's key personnel, directors, managers, planners, drivers and customers, this fascinating book explains what Chiltern Railways means to so many.' 300287

4 Great Western Railway, A History
Roden, Andrew Aurum Press Ltd 2010 1845135806 / 9781845135805 First Edition Hardcover New New Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
New Hardback. RRP. 18.99. 306pp. In excellent, fine condition. The dust jacket is supplied in a loose archival protective film sleeve (does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way). A new and comprehensive history of one of our best-loved railway companies. 'God's Wonderful Railway', the astonishing engineering feat of Isambard Kingdom Brunel's main line from Paddington to Penzance, with its stupendous bridge over the River Tamar, endless Box Tunnel and exhilarating stretch alongside the sea at Dawlish Warren, has always been beloved of anyone who likes trains. Andrew Roden's comprehensive new history of this remarkable railway company, whose well-engineered lines survive not only into the privatised era of First Great Western but also in numerous lovingly restored steam railways like the Dart Valley, tells the story of nothing less than the opening-up of the isolated south-west of England to the trade and tourism of the modern age. It has left us with soaring termini like Paddington and Bristol Temple Meads as well as glorious railway institutions like the Night Riviera overnight sleeper to Cornwall that endure to this day (not least thanks to the author's own campaigning!). While the GWR's green locomotives and chocolate and cream carriages may have given way to purple, anyone who wants to return to the golden age of the railways will find the company's history an enthralling journey. 301118
