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.

... Managed to absorb the first 44 pages last night - very interesting. It's the first railway book in a long time that I have read that once you start you just cannot put it down.

... I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your book.  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!

From the  Steam Railway  review, October 2016:

‘... most images are previously unpublished and historically priceless.‘       ‘ ... no collection of Waverley histories can be without it.’

From the  Railway Magazine  review, July 2016:

‘For anyone with even a passing interest in the railways of the Scottish Borders, this unique publication is an absolute must have and will evoke many memories. Add to the mix, more than 100 photos from the author’s own collection — the majority published for the first time — and you have a book that is highly recommended and deserves a place on any rail enthusiasts’ bookshelf.’
