The main line from Plymouth and the River Tamar to Truro was first opened in May 1859. This lovely new book explores the entire history of the main line from the earliest days of the Cornwall Railway through to the post-Privatisation era. The construction of this difficult line by Brunel is covered in depth, along with a concise history of the original acts which resulted in the opening of the main line. Opportunely published in the 150th anniversary year of the opening of the line, this new volume includes many useful details of the various viaducts and notable gradients, a comprehensive summary of services over the years, as well as a survey of freight traffic, culminating in the rationalisation of recent decades. In addition, railway infrastructure, especially stations, signal boxes, and major depots and yards are also explored in depth, along with a complete review of motive power in the region, from the broad gauge locomotives through to the modern HSTs and Voyagers. With enough information to satisfy even the most ardent enthusiast and a collection of stunning images, this is one not to be missed by railway enthusiasts around the country.

In February 2016 the RAF's Search and Rescue Force (SARF) celebrated its 75th anniversary. In June that year the world-renowned and universally admired service was officially disbanded, despite attempts from many, including HRH Prince William, to save it as part of the RAF. This book is an official, fully illustrated, in-depth account of the SARF's rich and glorious history, from its origins in World War II through to its recent withdrawal. The book contains a foreword by HRH Prince William himself, plus action-packed and awe-inspiring photographs from the RAF's archive of photographs and exclusive interviews with former crewmembers, telling their own dramatic stories of derring-do. Officially endorsed by the RAF, An Illustrated History of the RAF Search and Rescue Force is the first, and probably the only, major book of its kind written on this subject. It is an essential purchase for anyone with an interest in military history, British history, the Royal Family and those who love stories of extreme and daring rescue missions.

Cornwall Street Railway - the Insurance Company's Streetcars tells the fascinating story of the electric transit services provided in the eastern Ontario city by the Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada, which owned the system from its inception in 1886 until the passenger transit facilities were taken over by the municipality in 1970 and the freight switching services were absorbed into the Canadian National Railways system in 1971. The book, originally prepared by Omer Lavallee and Anthony Clegg to honour the memory of Charles P. DeRochie, was essentially completed in the early 1990s, but publication was delayed due to Mr. Lavallee's untimely death in 1992. It has now been brought to fruition by Railfare*DC Books and has been augmented by a selection of illustrations that were previously unavailable. Those who remember the Cornwall Street Railway will be glad to have this reminder of the trolleys, electric trolleycoaches, and electric switching locomotives that formerly served the city, while the serious students of municipal history and railway operations will be pleased to have a record of the well-known Canadian insurance company's not so well-known operations in the transit field. The book consists of 102 pages with over 160 photographs. There are five maps which record the growth of the community and another which shows from whence came the Cornwall Street Railway equipment.

"Pile of Bones", "Queen City of the West"--Regina's nicknames accurately reflect the city's exotic and varied history. Founded in 1882, Regina was one of the new towns that appeared along the Canadian Pacific Railway line as the "end of steel" marched steadily westward. J. William Brennan shows that Regina was, and in many respects still is, a "man-made city ": its location determined by the CPR and a cabal of land speculators. He demonstrates how a variety of forces--immigration and "King Wheat," the postwar oil and potash boom, and the spread of American popular culture--shaped the economic and social fabric of Regina over nearly a century. He offers finely crafted thumbnail sketches of her prominent and powerful citizens, and of more obscure citizens who nonetheless contributed greatly in the fields of labour and social services to the city's development. Handsomely illustrated with 150 historical photographs--many never before published--Regina: An Illustrated History reflects on the unique past of this remarkable western city.
