Readers are privileged to see Hampshire Railways in the 1940s, the same time as Mike Jacobs first saw a sailor carrying bananas at Portsmouth Station. Personal reminiscences are combined with accurate factual information as Jacobs visits and travels on and around the Southern Region in the 1950s and early 60s. There are visits to Eastly, Gosport, Lyme Regis, Exmouth, the East Devon branches, a Feltham bound freight through Staines on a hot 18th June 1960 summer's day, an immaculate G16 no. 30495, ex-works, and awaiting running-in 1958 and a Plymouth to Brighton service waiting to leave Fareham engine no. 34040 Crewkerne. There are interviews with the Works Manager at Eastleigh and interesting facts on Mr Bulleid and his engines, and the story continues with equally wonderful descriptions of visits from Kent across to Cornwall. This new title is copiously illustrated with new material, many previously unpublished, a colour map, glossy large pages in softback and hundreds of nostalgic original images reproduced to the best possible quality. 112pp.
