During WW2 the science of aviation advanced more rapidly than in any other similar period in history. The planes described in this book, such as the Supermarine Spitfire, Messerschmitt 109, North American P-51 Mustang, and Boeing B-17 Flying fortress, emerged as the truly outstanding designs of that period. The reader can trace the course of each plane’s design, its development, its introduction into service and its subsequent career in action. Each aircraft is described in detail, with a cutaway drawing to show its construction. Includes numerous eyewitness accounts from pilots, and more than 500 carefully chosen photos. This is a remainder book which is new and never used. It may have a remainder mark on the edge of the pages. 256 pp.

Gotherington Station, Bryan Nicholls
11 Bryan Nicholls Gotherington Station
Silver Link Publishing Ltd 2012 1857944216 / 9781857944211 Paperback New book A111 48 pages 169 x 238mm 
This story is unusual in that it documents not only the complete restoration and reinstatement of both platforms of the former Great Western Railway country station but also the building of a brand new standard gauge running line with its own private station and rolling stock. Even more remarkable is the fact that all of this was achieved on a shoestring budget and by the sheer toil and dedication of a tiny workforce. Although a private residence, the best views and probably the best way of assessing the scale of the project is to take a ride on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway between Cheltenham and Winchcombe. The summer floral displays are not to be missed and you may even find yourself running parallel to one or other of the various items of weird and wonderful rolling stock.
