TTND Steam World review

A GLOWING review by leading railway writer Andrew Roden of my new book ‘The Trains Now Departed: Sixteen Excursions into the Lost Delights of Britain’s Railways’ in ‘Steam World’ – Britain’s best-selling historical railway magazine – which has made it ‘Book of the Month’ in the July issue.

Here are some of the quotes from Roden’s review (he is writer of several definite railway histories):

‘It’s an excellent read, and amongst the most enjoyable and entertaining railway books of the year.’

‘Underlying Williams’s prose is a sense of joy…and real knowledge of his subject.’

”Evokes the appeal of the railway to so many millions of people…’

‘Here is a journalist with a real passion for the railways.’

(I blush, since many journalists who write about the railways do not always find favour!)
