‘Terry Nicholls’ aka ‘Saltash Auto to the High Speed Train’ is 108 sides of unashamed nostalgia.
Starting his railway career in Plymouth in the late 1950s, Terry progressed through the clerical grades in Carriage & Wagon and then Motive Power at the ideal time to witness the changeover from Steam to Diesel. He later moved on to a similar role at Bristol before taking a job in the Control office literally having his finger on the pulse when it came to change and with-it unusual workings.
In the Bristol area Terry was a popular speaker, illustrating his talks with a superb collection of colour slides some of which have been included in this new book.
The railway at its best, and on occasions at its worse is described by Terry but always in a positive sense which will leave the reader feeling as if he was actually there on the ground as well. If ever there was a railway book that was a ‘page turner’ this must surely be it.
