Comic artist, W. Heath Robinson, drew this humorous collection at the request of the Great Western Railway who were celebrating their centenary in 1935. It contains views of hissing steam locomotives, hand-operated level-crossings, cattle trucks, and the odd curmudgeonly porter.

Review:

'... surely the funniest railway book ever.' --Michael Williams, author of 'On the Slow Train' & 'Steaming to Victory'

"If you have an older relative who loves either trains or old-fashioned cartoon art, then I have the perfect gift for you to give them... The drawings are lovely, with plenty of detail to pore over. They're full of people, as manual labor was much more common then. And, of course, human nature hasn't changed, with people picking complicated ways to do things, and them liking to dress up and commemorate first trains." --"Comics Worth Reading"

About the Author:
