Lamberts Railway Miscellany (2010)


Anthony Lambert




Hi All,

A good book for those spare moments where a few pages pass the time full of tales from railways over time mainly it seems on initial impressions from the steam era.

Hardcover over 224 pages it will keep you entertained i'm sure a couple of snippets from one of the pages ...........

Afternoon tea through central Wales

The London Midland & Scottish Railway operated three tea cars created from London & North Western Railway third - class corridor coaches. Between the wars one of them worked on the 10.25am from Swansea Victoria to Shrewsbury over the gloriously scenic Central Wales line, being detached at Craven Arms for the return south on the 3.27pm

The first dining car

The first British dining - car service was introduced by the Great Northern Railway , in partnership with the Pullman Car Company , on 1 November 1879 when the Pullman diner Prince of Wales left Leeds Central at 10am for London King's Cross

Averaging two to three short passages per page a good buy especially as i managed to get a copy at the Works book shop for £3.99 (RRP £12.99)

"A book you cant do without full of fascinating gems" - Pete Waterman

Highly reccomended.
