Book - More Cornwall Railways Remembered by Stephen Heginbotham.
Following on from his successful book Cornwall's Railways Remembered, which catalogued the life and times of Signalling Technician Frank Sperritt, the author provides this sequel based around his own long and distinguished career working on the railway. As a MOM (Mobile Operations Manager) for Railtrack, which became Network Rail in 2002, the author was privileged to witness many unusual and rare events during the day-to-day running of the national railway network.

In 1994, when Railtrack was established as the privatised version of British Railways, the author became a Signalling Inspector (SI), whose job involved primar y responsibility for keeping the railway running in times of disruption or emergency. He also managed the daily tasks, including assessing and certifying competence of Signalmen and Signalwomen, rostering, checking level crossings, ordering stores, tending the signal lamps (which were then still paraffin lamps) and a myriad of other duties.

The author's position has given him unique access to the operational structure of the railway network either side of these major changes. He brings to the reader a fascinating insight into the recent history of railways in Cornwall, and by including over 260 photographs from friends and colleagues, he illustrates a bygone era, revealing some of the many incidents he and his colleagues attended over the years. Anyone with an interest in railways, in particular Cornwall's lines, will find this a fascinating book
