Paul Atterbury shares a wealth of memories and stories about the many railway journeys he has taken in Britain, encouraging you to explore the wonderful railway journeys that are still there to be enjoyed all over Britain's national railway network. * The routes selected are particular favourites from the National Network, with a special combination of landscape, history and visual pleasure. * They range from short, but classic, branch lines to long-distance routes that explore the best of Britain's countryside to link interesting cities, towns and villages. * The journeys are arranged regionally, from the far west of Cornwall to the Highlands of Scotland. * They also represent the full history of Britain's railways from the 1850s to the early years of the 20th century.
