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.
