Description
A nostalgic collection of stories from railwayman Harold Gasson (1924-2004), telling of his life on the lines. Full of humour, characters and anecdotes, the book follows his life from cleaning and maintaining engines at Didcot, to life in a mechanical signal box, 1941-57. Out of print for some years, a new edition republishes an anthology of all four of Gasson’s much-loved books: ‘Firing Days’, ‘Footplate Days’, ‘Nostalgia Days’ and ‘Signalling Days’, 1973-81. Filled with day-to-day insight of the places he visited and people he met, the stories are sure to spark memories of steam and Britain in the 40s and 50s. Enjoy a charming stroll down memory lane with Gasson’s expert and engaging words.
