Did you know that the Great Western Railway carried a 14th-century Gloucestershire cottage on the first part of its journey to the USA? Why were poppies removed from Surbiton station before Remembrance Day? What is ‘Railway Time’? No, it’s not ten minutes after GMT! The answer to these questions can be found in this amazing collection of oddities, curiosities and little-known facts about Britain’s railways. Colin G. Maggs has enjoyed collecting these unusual and amusing railway tales across a long career writing about the railways.
