Further Up the Crossing, by Ken Ausden

Book published by Golden Lion in 1987, 270 pages. paperback (S5661)

From the the foreword: In his first volume of semi autobiographical stories, we followed the adventures of ken and his mates through the days preceding the Second World War. Swindon, where Ken was born in the glorious days of steam, was a railway town - the place where GWR built the best engines in the world. Against a backdrop of railway factories, terraced houses and council schools we are presented with a vivid childs eye view of a unique and fascinating period, and in this book our journey takes us into the early, confusing months of the Second World War.

This book is not truely autobiography, but is full of stories that have its root based firmly in truth. It will almost certainly delight anyone who has lived or grown up in Swindon, as well as people with a more general interest in the history of the town and it's long connection with the railway, especially during the Second World War....

Condition of the book is generally very good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs and blemishes, but the spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound
