This book is a collection of memories, experiences and anecdotes from one who joined the London Midland Region (LMR) of British Railways (BR) and trained as an engineer, mainly in civil engineering, with that organisation. The book is set out chronologically and it is not intended in any way to be an exhaustive description or history, because the author's acquaintance was far from comprehensive. Beyond Crewe that acquaintance, apart from cab riding, reduces to a handful of locations almost entirely concerned with bridgeworks or, later, photography. The author's involvement in the electrification project work gives the narrative a southern emphasis. At one time he was responsible in the Divisional Civil Engineer's organisation for permanent way (p.way) renewal, then maintenance on the Euston-Shilton and St Pancras- Oakley sections, which means that he knew the routes well in the 1960s.
