Many modellers take great care over accuracy but run into difficulties because little information is available on how the railways actually operated. Drawing on a lifetime working for the railways in numerous roles in many parts of the country, John Chamney examines numerous traffic flows, from the humble pick-up freight calling at a country station through urgent perishables and newspaper traffic to boat trains and night mails, in places as divers as West Cornwall and Northern Scotland, Plymouth, Crewe, Inverness and Bromyard. Essential reading for anyone who wishes to operate a model railway authentically or just wants to know how the railways were really run.
