Country Railway Routes

Reading to Basingstoke

by Vic Mitchell & Keith Smith

Built as a broad gauge branch of the GWR, this route became an important north-south link in the national railway system, eventually becoming part of the Southern Region of British Railways. The diversity of through passenger and freight trains is fully illustrated, as are the varied local services. The long forgotten Reading Central Goods Depot is also featured.
