Brand New Book
Dundee had one of the earliest railway systems in Scotland (dating from the 1830's), and by the early 1900's could boast a complex network of lines serving virtually every town and village in Angus and Kincardineshire. But now there are just eleven functioning stations left in the two counties, although passengers can take a nostalgic ride on the preserved steam railway between Brechin and the Bridge of Dun.
This book provides a fascinating pictorial history of the railways in this part of Scotland, and is packed with lots of black and white photographs. They include images of Laurencekirk, Marykirk, Drumlithie, Newtyle, Baldovan and Downfield, Lochee West, Colliston, Leysmill, Crathes, Brechin, West Ferry, Elliot Junction, Lunan Bay, Portlethen, Justinhaugh, Tannadice, Dundee East and West, Edzell, Barnhill, Johnshaven, St Cyrus, Kirriemuir, Forfar, Guthrie, Auldbar Road, Dubton, Hillside and Newtonhill.
