UK Book Club Assoiciates 1994 Book Club Edition Hardcover Very Good Very Good Book 8vo - over 7 - 9 
This is no ordinary railway book. Covering a large part of the country, but of course with special emphasis on the North West, it surely confirms that our memories of the majesty of a steam locomotive hurtling through a busy junction or across a barren moor are not just fantasy. Indeed , turn the pages of this book and you soon hear and smell the thundering locomotives that knit Britain's economic and social life together. There is light spotting to the front and rear end-papers. The D/W shows signs of reader wear on its edges. Still a good tight copy. PLEASE NOTE; International economy shipping is by sea and may take upto 90 days to arrive. 
Price: 15.00 GBP
