9781906419684: The Meon Valley Railway: Part 2: A Rural Backwater

This new title, compiled by railway expert Kevin Robertson, forms the second of a three-part series covering the construction, life, and demise of the Meon Valley Railway. It focuses on the operational years of what was a rural backwater, again using much previously unseen material. The years featured are from 1904 to 1955, although right from the start the owning company, the LSWR, must have realized that the line could never attract business on its own. Indeed, economy started as early as 1922, after which came a slow decline tempered with a brief respite when Droxford became the scene of a high-level conference in preparation for D-day. All these, and many more aspects of what was a truly charming railway are covered in detail. This informative new title also includes extracts from official paperwork, snippets of local news from the stations themselves and a variety of mono and color illustrations.
