From the cover: “Ivo Peters and Mike Arlett, whose talents combined to make the award-winning film All Change at Evercreech Junction, will need no introduction to the many devotees of the Somerset & Dorset Railway. Here they cover not only the beloved S&D but also Great Western, Midland and even a few Southern railway scenes. It may come as a surprise to collectors of Ivo Peters’ earlier books that there exists such a wealth of previously unpublished material and, for those faithful followers, the S&D emphasis is on pre-1950 views.
The beautiful city of Bath is surrounded by some equally picturesque countryside, the industrial aspects of the area blending and sometimes contrasting with the landscape. Extending as far as Bristol and Yate in the north, Chippenham on the eastern side, Hallatrow and Wells to the west and Upton Scudamore just beyond Westbury to the south, the unrivalled range of Ivo Peters’ photographs and Mike Arlett’s informative text will captivate all steam enthusiasts who lament the passing of so magnificent an era as that pictured and described within.”
