Impermanent Ways: the Closed Lines of Britain : Cornwall and West Devon Volume 6 Paperback
by Amyas Crump
A second volume for the spring of 2013 in the successful 'Impermanent Ways' series sees Amyas Crump visit the far southwest of England as he examines the many closed lines of Cornwall and West Devon, from Plymouth west towards Penzance and featuring such lamented favourites as Callington, Fowey and Helston.
The former Southern lines to Bude and Padstow are also included.
The region was provided with a number of highly popular branch lines - some of which survive but many of which are now long closed - and the author explores many of these lines, both passenger and freight only, to provide the reader with a fascinating and nostalgic reminder of railway times past.
