Lost railways of Kent, By Leslie Oppitz Review

Lost railways of Kent, By Leslie Oppitz

Book Review: I'm a Kent lad. I've either lived, worked or been educated in all corners of my home county, so every town and village mentioned in this cracking book I've visited at some point. Even if it was just to whack golf balls or to enjoy the local pub.
160 pages of very well researched train history. There are as many photos too. It mattered not to me that all were in black and white. Honestly and thoroughly recommended.
Priced at 10.95 but I paid less than that from Amazon.

ISBN: 978-1-85306-803-4




Score: 5

Book Review: I'm a Kent lad.

Thank you for this helpful review, Alec.

Man of Kent or Kentish Man, though?

All the best.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1930s to the 1950s.

For the made-up background to the railway and list of characters, please see here: https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=38281.msg607991#msg607991

Man of Kent, John.

Yep, I know the difference, as you might expect from someone with an avatar like mine!
