The Galloping Sausage – Paperback Book


The formative years of Britain’s railway network produced a host of ideas, activities and characters, which now seem not only highly unusual, but sometimes little short of ridiculous. Weird schemes and designs, extravagant behaviour, reckless competition and larger-than-life characters all featured in the genuine struggle of the railway system to evolve.  This entertaining book, by ex-railwaymen Geoff and Ian Body, captures over 150 entertaining snippets, stories, and strange and unusual facts from an ample supply of railway curiosities. 192 pages of fascinating tales from the rails.
