The author "recreates the run"  from London-Padington to Padstow in Cornwall as it would have been in 1960, a 260 mile trip that would have taken the passenger 6.5 hours to complete if the train ran to plan. Using the recollections of original drivers and much historical research, Austin describes the trip the stations the halts, the tunnels and the landscape as the driver and his fireman would have known it in the golden age of steam,. 112 pages softback in fine condition.
