JUST three weeks ago, Penguin Random House published my latest book The Trains Now Departed: Sixteen Excursions into Lost Delights of Britain’s Railways. There’s been a lovely response from the national media, including extracts published by the ‘Daily Telegraph’, the ‘Independent’ and ‘i’ newspapers – and I’ve done many interviews on the BBC. And as I write this, the book is #No. 1 Bestseller in railways on Amazon


Rail magazine said: “Revel in what we’ve lost and wonder how on earth we ever had it. It’s a perfect book for a leisurely, long rail journey. If the scenery leaves you uninspired, then read a chapter, refresh your mind, and gaze once more from your window.”

“Chock full with enjoyment – will capture and transport,” said the Bookbag website.
