This slim volume was originally published when Brunel’s railway between London and Bristol had been fully opened for only eleven years. The guide is alive with the atmosphere of bustle and steam as Measom takes the reader on a journey over the whole network, describing in detail its towns and cities and the countryside between them. The nearest you can get to time travel for £3!
