Real Railway Tales - Geoff Body. We hope readers will enjoy these tales as much as they clearly did those in Signal Box Coming Up, Sir and Along Different Lines. Authors’ note: Sadly, Margaret Ritchie died between submitting her contribution and publication of this book. Cold relief at derby. When Philip Benham started his railway career he was told that he would ‘learn best on the job’ which proved very true, but sometimes quite uncomfortable. The transition from school to work can be quite a shock to the system.
Geoff Body and Bill .
Here railway professionals recall notable incidents from across their careers on the railways, lovingly compiled by expert railwaymen and authors Geoff Body and Bill Parker. The incidents covered in this illustrated book include such bizarre ‘everyday’ events as coping with hurricanes, rogue locomotives and runaway wagons, PR successes and otherwise, the Brighton Belle, Flying Scotsman and Mallard, training course capers, a wino invasion, trackside antics, the Eurostar backdrop, the birth of a prison, and royal and other special occasions. An enjoyable look back at life on the railways
