Impermanent Ways Volume 14 - Devon and Cornwall Revisited

Details

The 14th volume in this successful and acclaimed series revisits Devon and Cornwall. The book consists of new and previously unpublished material compiled by Jeffery Grayer whose earlier volumes on the closed lines of these two counties have been very popular. Devon and Cornwall are renowned both for their spectacular scenery, ranging from rugged uplands to dramatic seascapes, and as popular holiday destinations. Many will recall with affection lines portrayed in the book. Around 200 images, plans and items of ephemera are included, mostly in colour, depicting the closed lines featured. Routes operated by both the Southern and the Great Western are included and coverage extends from main lines to branches. In many cases heavily rationalised trackwork or empty platforms give clues as to past glories. The images present more than a simple 'then and now' perspective but instead include numerous examples of a more prolonged and subtle transition from a working railway to defunct trackbed.
