    Richard Morrison, The Times
  • A most beautiful book . . . full of information. I'd like to travel to every one of the stations. Simon Jenkins is a blessing to the nation, keeping an eye on our buildings and making sure they are not forgotten or neglected.

    Christian Wolmar, Spectator
  • This is a cracker . . . a beautiful book

    Chris Evans
