The Railways of Devon & Cornwall Around the Early 1960s covers many of the lines across the two counties and the steam locomotives that worked over them. Whilst there are main line photographs, this book mainly visits a selection of the now largely vanished secondary routes and branch lines. The early 1960s also saw the change from steam to diesel power, so the WR hydraulics and first generation DMUs also make an appearance. In the main, the time period is the eight years or so from 1958 until 1966. This book will appeal to railway enthusiasts, modellers, and those interested in local history. Coverage includes: The Exe Valley branch, The Culm Valley branch, The Teign Valley branch, Lyme Regis, Seaton Junction, Sidmouth Junction, Exeter, Crediton, Okehampton, Barnstaple, Torrington to Halwill, Bude and its harbour branch, The North Cornwall Railway to Wadebridge and Padstow, The Launceston and South Devon branch, Plymouth, The Looe branch, Bodmin, Wenford Bridge, Newquay to Par, Falmouth, The Helston branch, and concludes at Penzance. Virtually all of the photographs, a mixture of black & white and colour, have never been published before, and all were taken by the author, his father, or his friend Alan Maund.
