This is a winning mix of railway and social history, all brought to life by wonderful photographs and illustrations, many never seen before. It features long-lost tiny rural stations and halts as well as those that still serve bustling market towns and big cities. It shows the stations themselves, and fascinating photographs of the people who inhabited them, such station masters, signalmen and the passengers, from businessmen to families. It includes an insight into areas such as station advertising and toy stations - topics that capture the imagination and our sense of fun. A variety of special feature spreads include: stations and animals, great disasters, station clocks, gardens, station art and stations in films. Each chapter also includes a 'Wish You Were Here!' spread displaying old postcards of the stations.
