Main Line to the West: Branch Lines Part 4: The Southern Railway Route Between Basingstoke and Exeter
Final volume in the series, completing a monumental work of reference on this popular main line, Basingstoke to Exeter. This brings many details and developments up to date but more importantly ties in all the many branches which sprouted so delightfully at regular intervals across Hampshire, Wiltshire, Somerset, Dorset and Devon. Some are barely known to the general reader, others are timeless icons, the ‘English Country Branch Line’ personified.
Describes in detail with pictures and plans the branches to Seaton, Sidmouth, Lyme Regis, Exmouth, Amesbury, Bulford Military Camps, Chard; the Alton line of Oh, Mr Porter! fame is there, and even the old lines south from Andover to the margins of Southampton.
Includes many unpublished new photographs and an INDEX to all four volumes, will be of inestimable value to a work now approaching 1,300 pages.
