Crowood Press A Contemporary Perspective on GWR Signalling by Allen Jackson 10830

For over 150 years Britain's railways have relied on a system of semaphore signalling, but by 2020, all semaphore signals and lineside signal boxes will be gone. A Contemporary Perspective on GWR Signalling provides a unique record of the last operational mechanical signalling and infrastructure on Britain's railway network, as it applied to the former Great Western Railway (and lines owned jointly with other companies). It also includes a comprehensive explanation of what mechanical signalling is and how it works. Beautifully illustrated with over 400 contemporary images and with detailed information from a 2003-2014 survey, this is an essential resource for anyone with an interest in the traditional signalling systems of railways in Britain.

The book covers:
Lineside signalling equipment - semaphore signals, brackets and gantries, and other variations
Ways of working, from Absolute Block to Track Circuit Block (TCB)
Detailed coverage of the signal boxes and infrastructure on Network Rail, including routes through Shrewsbury, Hereford, Worcester, Cornwall, Chester and North Warwickshire
Diagrams of the major routes

Wild Swan Somerset and Dorset Swansong - Last Days of a Steam Railway 9780953877140

Wild Swan Somerset and Dorset Swansong - Last Days of a Steam Railway
Somerset and Dorset Swansong - Last Days of a Steam Railway by Bob Bunyar and Wild Swan Publishing
This book focuses on the last weeks of normal services over the Somerset and Dorset Railway from Bath to Bournemouth, concluded by the final weekend in early March 1966.

Produced in a portfolio format to properly present the photographs, many of which have not been published before, the illustrations are accompanied by a description of the the line and events during the final weekend. Featuring the S&Ds mix of LMS, Southern and BR steam ranging from the smallest of tank engines to Bulleids' light pacifics and the mighty 9Fs, the S&D had stiff grades and open countryside, providing a wide choice of settings for the railway photographer.

Even 50 years after closure the unique flavour and atmosphere of the Somerset & Dorset continues to attract enthusiasts, many of whom know the line only from the superb photographic record.

Wild Swan LMS Locomotive Profiles 14 Class 3F 0-6-0 Tank Engines LMSP14

A locomotive profile of the well-known LMS 3F 0-6-0 tank engines, known to enthusiasts as Jintys.

These locomotives were very versatile. Designed as heavy shunting engines the 3F tank, like the GWRs panniers, were equally capable branch line engines and one group was actually built to replace former North London Railway locomotives, working busy commuter services.

This book provides an useful historical overview of the class, covering and illustrating developments, fittings and detail changes with photographs and extracts from works drawings.
