From the Author's Introduction:
"...Not all villages could provide enough passengers for such establishments [as fully-staffed stations]. The railway companies had seen the tramways reaching out from the towns, offering waiting passengers no shelter; from 1903 motor busses began to do the same. Co-incidentally, the steam railcar which had not succeeded in earlier experiments, was being re-invented. The two together, halt and railcar, could offer a new dimension in economical transport. A short wooden platform, unstaffed, and a steam railcar consuming little coal - what could be better?"
"...About 80 halts were put up by the constituent companies of the later Southern Railway... [and] seventy put up later. That so many are now totally forgotten is the reason for this book." Good Condition. 1985 1st Edition. Cover very slightly rubbed. Book in good order. M9-OKEO-L7FQ
