RAILWAYS ON AND AROUND DARTMOOR
Chips Barber

This book is not meant to be a definitive guide to Dartmoor's passenger railways, but just a brief and light-hearted encounter with them. It attempts to be a brief look at railways on and around Dartmoor, to see their characteristics and peculiarities, to understand how the topography of the moor affected them and to conclude what their roles were in that ever-turning wheel we call social history. Several contemporary extracts from newspaper articles, about their genesis or exodus, have been included to show how they were welcomed, or how enthusiasts said their "goodbyes" to them.
