My current book list....
These two volumes are currently sat on my bedside table. Freddie Huxtable was brought up within sight and sound of the Barnstaple branch, a railway that really is the West Somerset's sister line. He has been researching the branch for many years and the first volume appeared in 2016. The second volume which covers stations and signalling has recently been published. I have a vested interest as I drew all the maps in the book for Freddie - my years working as a cartographer were not wasted! Both books are beautifully put together and deserve a place on all of our bookshelves. Volume 3 is in production - expect sometime next year! Both books available from railway bookshops. Highly recommended.
