Book review

In 1945 Mike Jacobs visited the Isle of Wight for the first time and was captivated by the railway system, which he innocently believed at the time to be concentrated only at Ryde. Over the years, further visits followed, including trips on the Island line to Ventnor, Bembridge, Newport, and Yarmouth. Already addicted to the charm of the Island system, it was fortunate indeed when in 1954 the family moved to Ventnor, which was to cement his fascination with the railway system. Mike Jacobs' stories of railway life half a century ago and more, seen through the eyes of both a regular passenger and an enthusiast, are unique. Written with wonderful warmth of feeling, the reader is immediately taken back to a long-forgotten time and to a quaint way of life that has now all but disappeared. Fully illustrated with plenty of rare mono illustrations, this volume captures the ever-changing railway scene beautifully.
