'A magical world barely changed since the golden age of rail' Daily Mail
'Captivating' Sunday Express
Renowned railway writer Michael Williams takes us on twelve of today's most captivating and historic British railway journeys - harking back to an era when travel meant more than hurrying from one place to the next in crowded carriages, before small country stations with their milk churns, porters and slumbering cats on seats were replaced by the modern world of security announcements, 'leaves on the line' and Burger King.
On the Slow Train reconnects with the long missed need to lift our heads from the daily grind and reflect that there are still places in Britain where we can stop and stare. In its pages you will find many things: a love of railways, a love of history, a love of nostalgia, a love of the exuberance of people, and a love of life.
'Deep in our soul, the railways represent an idyll that we love' Independent
