FARES, PLEASE!:The Story of Public Transport FARES, PLEASE!:The Story of Public Transport
Ref R609

The clang of the trolley bus bell, the sudden, piercing blast of the guard's whistle, the whirr of the clippies ticket machine and the familiar, friendly call of 'Fares, Please!' are all sounds that bring back memories of travelling by public transport in years gone by.

This lively history takes the reader on a journey of discovery: starting with horse-drawn open buses and cabs, through the age of trams, steam trains and trolley buses, to the much-loved red Routemaster buses. There are stops on the way to take in the genius of Victorian invention, the chicanery of politicians, and the turbulence of social upheaval.

Stan Yorke's book is filled with photographs that show a glorious cavalcade of public transport vehicles of every kind. There is also a list places to visit where many examples, lovingly restored to working order by the hard work and enthusiasm of dedicated devotees, can be seen today.

GOLDEN YEARS OF BRITISH TRAMS:THE GOLDEN YEARS OF BRITISH TRAMS:THE
Ref R225H

This exciting book has been heralded as the finest visual record of British Tramways ever published. Recognising the depth and content of Henry Priestley's photography, Colin Garrat embarked on the task of collating a representative example of his work embracing the whole of Britain. This was carried out in conjunction with the National Tramway Museum in Crich, Derbyshire where Henry Priestley's tramway legacy is being conserved.

During the spring of 1995, when the final stages of this book were in production, Colin Garratt undertook a series of recorded interviews with Henry Priestley. These have provided a fascinating insight into the remarkable career of this little-known photographer whose creative work spanned a period of over 75 years. The originals of these tapes are now also held at the National Tramway Museum.

LCC ELECTRIC TRAMWAYS LCC ELECTRIC TRAMWAYS
Ref R222H

The London County Council tramways network was the largest municipal system in Great Britain. For over three decades, from the start of the twentieth-century, its electric trams served the needs of Londoners.

Sadly, the reign of the Council Tramways was too short, and the efficient network deserved a better fate than that which awaited it, on the 1st July 1933, at the hands of the London Passenger Transport Board.

Foreword

After eight years of publication our railway guide "Still Steaming" was just about 'bursting at the seams', so this year we have decided to produce a separate guide for those smaller than standard gauge sites and - here it is!

We have included the country's major narrow-gauge and miniature locations but you also find that a number of the larger railways which are included in "Still Steaming' are shown too as they also house miniature railways. In addition, we have added the major national museums which, although predominantly standard gauge are just too important (and interesting) to omit.

Ref R226H

0 S Nock wrote over 100 books for the railway enthusiast, but none has been as well-loved as his two original Blandford Pocket Encyclopaedias covering British steam locomotives and the steam railways of Britain.

This unique compilation volume combines the text and illustrations from the two pocket encyclopaedias. Altogether, 386 colour illustrations portray the history of steam from Stephenson's 'Locomotion' to Riddles's 'Evening Star', together with the carriages, rolling-stock, signals, railway coats of arms and classic locomotives which proved to be railway milestones.

This book is a joy of nostalgia for the days when steam ruled the railways. The fashions, the craftsmanship and the excitement of the steam period are vividly represented in its 392 pages.

RAILWAY ADVENTURE RAILWAY ADVENTURE
Ref R085

L T C Rolt was one of a small group of amateur railwaymen who made their dream of running their own railway come true. His vivid and often amusing account of this unique achievement is a record of individual enterprise and creative effort as refreshing as it is rare. Established by Act of Parliament in 1865 and unaffected by mergers and nationalisation, the Talyllyn Railway has been serving a remote and beautiful valley in the Merioneth mountains ever since. In 1950 the line was threatened with closure, and it was at that moment that the amateurs came to the rescue. It is now the oldest surviving railway of its kind in the world.

This book is delightful reading for both railway devotees and lovers of the Welsh countryside. Experience this railway adventure set amidst the magnificent mountains of Wales.

It defines terms specific to both railways and tramways and includes proper names of trains, lines, companies, periodicals and manufacturers, as well as clarifying a profusion of abbreviations. The dictionary also interprets in a clear and concise manner many foreign words and phrases, and the slang used by professionals and amateurs alike. Several hundred new entries have been added to this fourth edition, and the many entries have been revised to take account of new terminology and developments in the industry.

RAILWAYS OF NORTHAMPTONSHIRE,THE RAILWAYS OF NORTHAMPTONSHIRE,THE
Ref R120H

Northamptonshire local historian David Blagrove tells the story of the railway system of this Midlands County from the early plateways that assisted with the building of the canals in Georgian times to the modern West Coast mainline Pendolinos.

The story details the way in which modern Northamptonshire was shaped by the Victorian transport system; how the railways rose to the challenges of road competition and war in the twentieth century; how the tragic demise of so many rural routes came about during the 1950s and 60s; how the modern slimmed-down system still serves its communities. The devotion and service of railway personnel, from the heroic days of Robert Stevenson and I. K. Brunel and their navvy gangs, through the great competitive racing of the 1890s and the two world wars, runs as a theme through the book, which is lavishly illustrated with many previously unpublished views and scenes. We meet the characters who made the system operate, from the great Victorian managers and entrepreneurs to the footplatemen and porters who carried out their orders. There are stories of high farce and deep tragedy, from the seizure of a locomotive for debt by a hire-purchase firm to the grim scenes at the rare serious accidents in the county.

RED FOR DANGER RED FOR DANGER
Ref R087

Railway disasters are almost always the result of human fallibility - a single mistake by engine driver, guard or signalman or some lack of communication between them - and it is in the short distance between the trivial error and its terrible consequence that the drama of the railway accident lies.

First published in 1955, and the result of Rolts' careful investigation and study of the verbatim reports and findings by H M Inspectorate of Railways, this book was the first work to record the history of railway disasters, and it remains the classic account. It covers every major accident on British Railways between 1840 and 1957 which resulted in a change in railway working practice, and reveals the evolution of safety devices and the methods which came to make the British railway carriage one of the safest modes of transport in the world. This edition uses the last text produced by Rolt himself in 1966 and includes a new introduction by his friend and fellow railway historian Professor Jack Simmons.

L. T. C. Rolt trained as an engineer, but his fame rests on his classic biographies of Brunel, Telford, Trevithick and the Stephensons, his superb volumes of autobiography (Landscape with Machines, Landscape with Canals, Landscape with Figures), his volumes of transport history, and on his account of the journey along waterways of England, 'Narrow Boat'.

He founded the Inland Waterways Association and was instrumental in encouraging interest in Britain's industrial heritage at Tal-y-Llyn and elsewhere.

He died in 1974.

STEAM RAILWAYS EXPLAINED STEAM RAILWAYS EXPLAINED
Ref R300

Steam railways have always captivated the public's imagination. Even from the first stirrings of the mineral lines in the early 1800s through to the heyday of the Railway Age steam engines kept and continued to keep their fascination.

The delight is that around these isles is a wide range of working, restored steam railways. Every size and type is represented and it is these railways that primarily feature in this book, providing a real, solid picture of life and transport as it was.

In this easy-to-follow book, Stan Yorke explains the development of the steam railway and how the various parts worked. Illustrated by over 100 photographs, and aided by his son Trevor's superb drawings, the book is divided into four sections: the history; the track, signalling and building; the locomotives and rolling stock; and finally a review of the restored railway scene today, including a selection of sites to visit.

Stan Yorke is a retired engineer with a particular love of historic engines and machines. He is also the author of "English Canals Explained", "The Industrial Revolution Explained", and "Windmills and Waterwheels Explained''.
