Some comments from purchasers of Memories of Lost Border Railways:

... I can’t recommend this book more strongly to anyone with an interest in the Border lines  – Roger Jermy, The Link (Aln Valley Railway magazine), Autumn 2017

... With ‘softback’ card covers, the easily read text and photographs are well laid out on high quality glossy paper and the book is highly recommended.  In fact, any collection of Waverley Route histories should not be without it  –  from ‘The Gresley Observer’, Summer 2017 issue.

... I have just finished reading your book – and it is one of the few that I simply could not put down!  In fact, I enjoyed it so much I am going to read it again!

... Loved the book. It was so emotive. It brought back the joys (and some pains) of boyhood. Probably my favourite Waverley Route book and I have read them all.  It was a great read and added so much interest and depth to what I know about the railways of the Borders.

... It would seem that my friend whom I gave your wonderful book to read, likes it so much he has decided to keep it!  Therefore I am afraid I will have to order another one!


Front cover:        Gordon Station, Berwickshire.  1965.

                            The last train ever leaves the station.

The book is now out of print and I have no copies left.

I’ve checked with my stockists and those who replied are out of stock as well.

However, I have seen an occasional used copy on eBay or Oxfam site --- check as well.

I can get single copies printed to order, but they are expensive ~ around £30.
