Scotland's @ Stations


Bit of a departure tonight. Instead of self-aggrandising my own writing, I thought it might be nice to publicise a fellow author’s work.

Famedram's popular tourist titles usually cover the likes of whisky and haggis, the Vital Spark and great Scottish inventions plus of course the lighter side of Highland life.

A Scottish through and through publishing house - god knows we need them now more than ever – the Famedram brand has now ventured bravely into the realm of the railway buff in the form of Scotland’s Stations – A Traveller’s Guide. And a good thing too!
This splendid publication reveals the largely unknown history of the stations which serve our Scottish national rail network. Superbly illustrated throughout, the book sets out on a modern-day Bradshaw style journey around these, largely Victorian, historical sites.

Around 150 of Scotland’s platforms are featured and alongside an image or two, each entry records the unique history of the station plus a general description of the locality.

In all honesty, this is a clearly written travelogue which will inform both the casual coffee table user plus, of course, those intent on station bagging.
