“It must surely be the best guide to any preserved railway centre of any sort, anywhere. It's just wonderful. You have included such a fabulous selection of pictures past and present, encompassing so many people as well as every aspect of the trains, etc. Hope it sells a million, it certainly deserves to.” - Michael H.C.
