Famous Last Lines 2

Following the successful format of the original Famous Last Lines, Volume 2 embarks on a further nostalgic journey and draws readers back into the near-vanished world of first generation railway power. Evocative introductions set the scene for the action on the featured lines. Famous Last Lines 2 takes up the quality challenge laid down by its predecessor, and matches it.
