A pocket guide to a little-known country branch line in the Forest of Dean, with details of line, track-side features and the people, motive power and rolling stock which worked it.
Covering almost every line in the country, this acclaimed series of books juxtaposes photographs of the same railway location separated in time by just a few years, or maybe a century or more. Sometimes the result is dereliction or disappearance, in others a transformation into a modern high-speed railway. In both cases, the contrasts are intriguing and informative. This volume includes: the Great Western main line over the South Devon banks; Great Western lines in North Devon; the Exeter and Plymouth areas; the Southern in East Devon; the Southern's 'Withered Arm' route to Plymouth; and, preserved lines: the Paignton & Dartmouth Steam Railway, Dart Valley Railway and Seaton Tramway.
From the early 1900s to the present day we can witness the unfolding story of this popular holiday line, from Newton Abbot through Paignton, the start of the preserved section, beside the sea at Goodrington, to Churston and the Brixham branch, through Greenway Tunnel, and down to the terminus beside the yacht-filled estuary.
