Ayrshire's Forgotten Railways. Ref: MS3158  

A walker's guide. ORW1.
Wham.
Medium, 200 pages, photos, maps, soft back. *Oakwood are now branching out into walkers' guides : this is the first. There are notes about access, terrain and facilities for each walk, but no individual maps - the maps are of the railway networks of different parts of the county. So you might get lost, but at least you will be well-informed as there is a substantial amount of local railway history given for each walk. The photos are predominantly of past scenes although some recent views are included.

Bradshaw's Continental Guide, For Travellers Through Europe, Ref: MS3386  

with an epitomized description of each country, and maps of Europe, showing the lines of railways opened.
-
Small, xvi + 1106 pages, plus 2 folding maps and a third loose in a pocket, heavy paper, silk headband and footband, bookmark with ribbon, paper-covered hard covers in facsimile to the original, in clear plastic jacket. **The title above is that given on the title page; the cover bears the title Bradshaw's Continental Railway Guide And General Handbook Illustrated With Local And Other Maps Special Edition.
A reproduction of the European guide book used on Michael Portillo's BBC TV programmes. Bradshaw's Continental Guides were issued in two formats, plain and special. This handsome volume mimics the splendid red leather special edition, and although the cover is really paper-covered boards it looks pretty good and is fantastic value. Unlike the very rare British Tourist handbooks the Continental Guides are occasionally available in the original editions. They may have been more popular due to containing railway time tables for the whole continent, as well as tourist information, which was a secondary matter.

Price: 25.00
 

Bradshaw's Rail Times For Great Britain And Ireland December 1895. Ref: MS2881  

A reprint of the classic timetable complete with period advertisements and shipping connections to all parts.
-
Medium, xliv + 770 + 30 pages, map, soft back. **Compounding the reigning confusion over the nomenclature of Bradshaw's publications, the publishers of this reprint have improved on the original title. Many of us know this time table as Bradshaw's Guide, or, for more formal occasions, Bradshaw's General Railway And Steam Navigation Guide, For Great Britain And Ireland. It is, of course, a set of time tables covering the entire country, and thus an unrivalled reference for planning railway journeys through nineteenth century Britain. It is definitely not a tourist guide.

Bradshaw's Descriptive Railway Hand-Book Of Great Britain And Ireland. Ref: MS3339  

Special Collector's Edition
-
Small, 452 pages, plus 8 double-page maps in a final section, heavy paper, silk headband and marker ribbon, leather-covered hard back without jacket. **The title above is that given on the title page; the cover bears the title !!<<i>Bradshaw's Hand Book 1. 2. 3. 4.
This is the de luxe reprint of the actual book used on Michael Portillo's BBC TV programme containing four issues of Bradshaw's Descriptive Railway Handbook, bound especially for the series. Together the four parts of the book cover Great Britain plus all of Ireland and describe the main features and historic buildings of the principal towns. Here, then, is a reprint of Mr Portillo's own Bradshaw. It contains the indexes and descriptive text and most of the illustrations. The advertisements, all but one, are omitted. Eight of the town maps are included: Birmingham, Sheffield, Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Hull, Glasgow and Edinburgh. A high quality and very handsome production. The publishers describe the binding as leather, and it certainly resembles leather in every way except price and smell.
The book does not, of course, contain any time tables.

Very large, 120 pages, photo illustrations, some colour, dock plans, track layout, soft back. **The author was Port Manager at Goole and Hull between 1998 and 2003. As with his book on King's Lynn, he does not claim this as a definitive history but an informative and graphic portrayal of the port from its inception until the present day, including its railway connections past and present. The port thrives, and this record of it does it ample justice.
We were privileged to be shown over the port by the author, an unforgettable experience, the fascination intensified by the sight of more timber than one could have imagined possible.

Myths & Legends Of Stamford In Lincolnshire. Ref: MS1578  


Smith, M.
Medium, 128 pages, illustrated in the antique taste by the author, soft back. **This is the book we sell to non-railway-minded train travellers: as (almost) the only non-transport book we stock it saves them the hassle of decision-making. It is a good choice: a collection of Stamford's myths, legends, miracles, customs and curious characters written and drawn by a truly talented local man and handsomely produced in antiquarian style by an off-beat local publisher. A book Stamford can be proud of.
