Mile by Mile on the LNER Kings Cross Edition by SN Pike

£12.99

Product description

This is a detailed guide to the East Coast Main Line dating from 1947. 'The object of this little book is to encourage the passenger to anticipate his progress, and to enable him to know, to a nicety, what he next will see from the window at any and every stage of the journey. It is such a pity to sacrifice this experience to idle slumber or to concentration on magazine that would the better be enjoyed at home.' Board a train at Kings Cross with this little pamphlet in hand and your journey to Edinburgh will be transformed. Should 'train headache' strike, seek advice from the back cover. The cover itself is a little ragged but this is a clean copy in reasonable condition.
