The Westbury to Salisbury Line

Salisbury was initially unlucky in the provision of railways, but that started to change from 1847 when it was reached by an extension of the London & Southampton Railway. This prompted the GWR to propose a line 52 miles long from Thingley to Salisbury. The Wilts & Somerset Railway would also have branches to Devizes, Bradford and Frome, with a 'coal' branch to Radstock. Dealing with the Westbury to Salisbury section, the book deals with early proposals, other schemes, the building of the line and so on. This is followed by chapters describing the line, locomotives, accidents, signalling and permanent way. Finally there is a chapter on First World War military branches. There are seven appendices including Westbury Shed Allocation, Westbury Ironworks Locomotives, Logs of Run, Traffic Dealt with at Stations. The many illustrations include maps, adverts, photographs, station plans, timetables etc.

Softback. 160 pages, 125 illustrations
