Synopsis: The follow up book to 'Discovering Scotland's Lost Railways', Julian Holland's new book features Castle Douglas to Kirkcudbright * Newton Stewart to Whithorn Ayr to Dalmellington * Elvanfoot to Wanlockhead * Galashiels to Eskbank via Peebles * Reston to St Boswells via Greenlaw * Ballinluig to Aberfeldy Montrose to Bervie * Aberdeen to Ballater * Kintore to Alford * Dingwall to Strathpeffer *The Mound to Dornoch * Wick to Lybster. Many of these lines had closed long before Dr Beeching came on the scene in 1963 - their closures hastened by increasing competition from road transport in the 1930s and 1940s. Royalty has also graced one of Scotland's long lost lines. Sadly missed even today the railway along Deeside from Aberdeen to Ballater changed the area dramatically creating publicity through its use by royalty visiting Balmoral. Many important visitors to the castle, including the Tsar of Russia, travelled on the line - the last being Queen Elizabeth II who left on the last royal train from Ballater on 15 October 1965. Profusely illustrated with historical and present-day photographs, LOST LOCAL LINES brings to life the golden years of these railways and discovers what remains of them today. Press attention for 'Discovering Scotland's Lost Railways : 'Not a dreary dossier for flask-wielding railway ramblers - Scotland's lost rails are a colossal monuments to an age characterised by ambition and superhuman feats of engineering that helped shape the nation we know today.' The Sunday Post 'A true insight into the lasting railway legacy on the landscape and communities of Scotland, as well as a history of the lost railways of Scotland. Full of colour, it has beautiful imagery, and is a great read for anyone interested in the railways of Scotland.' Museum of Transport, Glasgow 'Full of evocative detail' The Herald 'A wonderful book' The Scots Magazine
