Rattenbury & Cook.
Medium, 132 pages, illustrated with photographs, line drawings and good clear maps, soft back. **The Hay Railway was completed in 1816 and linked the town of Hay in the Welsh borders with the canal at Brecon; it was later extended to Eardisley and thence the Kington Railway's line ran to Kington and Dolyhir. These two horse-worked railways had a joint length of 36 miles, greater than any other contemporary railway. For over forty years they served the small towns and villages of this area of the Welsh Marches until they were superseded by locomotive-worked lines in mid-century.

A guide to the scenic railways of Norfolk and the adjoining counties.
Pearson.
Very large, landscape, 64 pages, illustrated with maps and photographs, colour throughout, handsomely produced, soft back. **So many of our books are historical it is refreshing to have one bang up to date - this is an enthusiastic rallying call to explore the railways of northern East Anglia. The system is divided into manageable sections each with a map, a description of the route, (this does include some history, the author is a traditionalist) and a gazetteer of the places along the way, with lists of accommodation, pubs, restaurants, shops, walks, boatyards, and bus, taxi and cycle hire details for onward travel. All this for just £4.99? There are no ads, but the commercial sponsors get a couple of pages at the end. Sadly the adjoining counties don't include Lincolnshire - it would be good to see more of this sort of guide.

However, during his GC travels, Newton also photographed scenes of day to day life in the surrounding towns and countryside and it is for these many extra pictures, full of interesting detail, that one might prefer this book to Rolt's.
